Grade 3-7?Each title offers a brief history of the highlighted sport before presenting various skills needed to play the game. Even though the colorful covers may attract readers, the interior stop-action photos are small, black-and-white, and tend to be out of focus. Both books include tips from professional players. The complete rules of the games are included as is fascinating trivia. However, better books on both sports abound.?Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
