Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In picture-book format, Gibbons provides the basic facts about two popular sports. Using short, clear sentences, she defines terms, explains the rules, and describes scoring. One line in each book mentions the equipment necessary for each game, but the information is well augmented by clearly labeled, colorful drawings showing additional gear, such as shin guards for soccer players or protective covering for the baseball catcher. Both books contain diagrams of the game fields. However, the words selected for the brief glossaries seem arbitrary; for example, "cleat" is defined in Soccer, but not in Baseball. These informative books will be enjoyed by new players or spectators of older siblings' events.

Review

Reviewed with "My Baseball Book" "Ages 4-8. This pair of small, snappily designed books are attractive, accessible introductions to the two sports children are most likely to play. Diverse groups of young children, drawn in Gibbons' typically bright colors and cheery style, demonstrate sports equiptment and game plays. Each book includes a diagram of the field, and a breif glossary explains sports basics, such as offense and teamwork as well as specific terms ("dribble," "strike"). Margart Blackstone's books, such as "This Is Soccer" (1999), which are written for the same young audience, catch the excitement of game play; these books make the sports understandable.- - "Booklist"Reviewed with "My Baseball Book""In picture-book format, Gibbons provides the basic facts about two popular sports.

My two love this book. It breaks the principles of the game into simplistic steps and basic explanations which are perfect for preschoolers. The bold pictures make the book enjoyable for the boys to "read" to themselves sometimes, too.

My daughter is 7 and just starting soccer. This book was great to go over the positions and terms. There isn't a lot of discussion about the rules of the game, but it is appropriate for 1st time players.

I bought this for a 4 year old boy who likes soccer. Before I gave it away, I read it to my 4 year old son and I think he sort of liked it, but never got into it. I think it might be a little too simplistic for a 4 year old.

We bought this book for our grandson's 5th birthday. He plays soccer so already knows the game, but the book included things he didn't know and seemed to have just the right amount of information to be interesting to him. Great book!

Great illustrations, and very informative as to the game of soccer for young children...a little over the head of my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, but still useful even to her.
