From Booklist

Sports stars literally jump from the pages of this unusual pop-up book. On each spread devoted to a different sport, a large photo springs into 3-D as the pages open. The extensive accompanying text includes biographical information about the athletes; historical overviews, such as “The Greatest Super Bowl Upsets”; profiles of other legendary figures in the sport; and quirky, themed sidebars, such as the “Sibling Revelry” feature, about great siblings in sports, which runs alongside a spread about the Williams sisters. Some of the text feels better suited for another format—a breakdown of the New York Giants Super Bowl XLII Miracle Drive, for example, might be better explained on an interactive Web site. On other pages, the text feels too cramped and dense. Another quibble: why two spreads on football but none on soccer? It’s the paper engineering more than the sports facts that will draw kids to these pages. This isn’t a necessary purchase, but the dramatic, eye-catching visuals make this a good browsing choice for reluctant readers. Grades 3-6. --Gillian Engberg

Bought this book for my 13-year-old son who loves baseball.

Most pop-up books don't have a lot of pages and this one doesn't either, but the pages are very colorful and cool.

This book is so wonderful and any sports fan would love to have it.

My nieces and nephew are diehard readers of the magazine and play Fantasy sports on [...]. So being familiar with the Sports Illustrated Kids brand, I was expecting this pop-up book to be pretty good. I was wrong. The SI Kids pop-up book is great! It's one of the coolest pop-up books I've ever seen, and being about sports makes it all the more interesting and unique. I have no idea how skateboarder, Danny Way, manages to do two 360s, reenacting his historic jump over the Great Wall of China with a simple turn of the page, totally awesome! The kids in my family will be thrilled to receive my pre-ordered copies for Christmas.

Very nice. I was hoping for a few more pages, but still very cool. I am not sure if my son will appreciate it or not, he's getting it for Christmas. I hope so!

This book is beautifully done. The illustrations are large and intricate. It is the type of book that should be looked at with parental supervision because the pop ups are large and have to be folded down carefully.
