Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5 Up-A two-time winner of the WNBA Defensive Player of the Year award shares her expertise. The book, which offers both instruction and advice, stresses teamwork and encourages girls to have fun playing the game. Exercises range from pregame stretches to off-season conditioning. The many black-and-white action photographs allow readers to see each exercise, drill, or play under discussion. Weatherspoon also includes stories about her family and the sport that she loves. She emphasizes that she has bad days on the court and that every mistake should teach a lesson. Although Faye Y. Miller and Wayne Coffey's Winning Basketball for Girls (Facts On File, 1992) has much of the same information, the personal anecdotes and up-to-date photographs make this title especially appealing. An excellent resource for sports collections.

From the Back Cover

Great news for the millions of young hoopsters dreaming of someday running with the pros: two-time Olympian and professional star Teresa Weatherspoon is sharing all of her basketball secrets! In this fun and informative book, not only will you get the inside scoop on passing, dribbling, defending, shooting, and all the rules of the game, you'll also learn why Spoon believes that unselfishness, hard work, and a positive attitude are as valuable as technical skill.

With tons of instructional photos and heaping "Spoon"-fuls of inspiration, personal history, and inside tips, Teresa Weatherspoon's Basketball for Girls delivers all the goods. In no time, you'll be tearing up the courts, burning up the nets, and showing how it's really done!

Teresa Weatherspoon's Basketball for Girls is not only the best instructional book for basketball that I have read, but it also gives girls an inside look at one of today's positive role models, which has been sorely needed.

What a fun book! "Spoon" has always been an inspiration (so what if I don't have her jump shot). The skills she teaches in the book are wonderfully presented but what makes this book special is her inspirational comments about teamwork, success and family. It's great to have a book just for girls, and with the success of the WNBA it's about time! Even if you are not into playing basketball, it makes great reading for someone who just wants to watch and appreciate the game. And this 30+ year old girl loved it! I can't wait to buy copies for my nieces.

Format: Paperback
Weatherspoon is one of the most admirable players to come down the pike since the days of Bill Bradley. The book -- with lots of illustrative pictures -- is aimed at teaching younger players, but has good fundamental advice for players of any age (or gender, for that matter). What makes it fascinating are the set-off pieces by Weatherspoon that give an insight into her character. If you like her now, you'll come away liking her even more.
