Book Title: My First Book of Basketball
Author: The Editors of Sports Illustrated Kids
My First Book of Basketball, the sixth book in the best-selling Rookie Book series from Sports Illustrated Kids, coaches young kids through the game of basketball with a visual retelling of a professional basketball game—from the jump ball to the game-winning basket! Dribbling, passing, traveling, shooting, dunks, and more are all explained using a fun mix of Sports Illustrated action photography, simple text, a full glossary of terms, and awesome graphics. Illustrated “Rookie” characters—a girl, Gabby, and a boy, Sprat—appear on every page, providing fun facts and simple explanations to help kids better understand the game. Perfect for emerging readers from preschool up, My First Book of Basketball is meant to be a shared reading experience between parents and their little rookies before, during, and after the game.
Our family has really been enjoying this series of Rookie Books by Sports Illustrated Kids. The books are well laid out with a ton of visuals and graphics for kids to follow. There are real photographs laid out on brightly colored backgrounds that make the Athletes photos pop out. The book tells you the basic facts of the sport with fun facts and hilarious “thinking bubbles” as well! Recommended for younger sports fans!
