Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 3-6. Golf is a fast-growing sport among young people, but there are far fewer books about it than about perennial favorites such as baseball. The format, which uses the alphabet to lead into interesting information, is clunky, and the singsong rhymes may turn off older readers. But Herzog manages to introduce an enormous amount of information in short, effective bites of text. "M is for the Masters, / where top pros try to hack it. / The winner of this magic major / gets a cool green jacket" may not be particularly lyrical, but an accompanying paragraph contains a history of the Masters Tournament, notes recent winners, and briefly tells the story behind the green jacket. Additional paragraphs explain mulligans and miniature golf. Langton's oil paintings, which usually take up two-thirds of a page, are large and lovely, and they give a sense of the enthusiasm and skill synonymous with the sport. Ilene Cooper

Great book for golf lovers to share with little ones. Grampy hopes to pass on his appreciation of golf to his grandson, while hoping his grandson will be by his side on the green one day. Quality time together is what counts. Whether it be spent reading, gardening, playing or golfing.

The book was in great condition and arrived in plenty of time. This book was a birthday gift for my son. Guests that attended the birthday party signed the inside of the book. This book is age appropriate for many readers. It has the ABC version of the story for younger readers to listen and relate to. Older children would enjoy reading and learning the history of golf with the added text in the margins. The pictures are soft and pleasing to the eye. My son will enjoy this book for many years to come.

Our son is 3yo with an imaginary golf course, instead of an imaginary friend. We usually read the "short version" (phrases by the pictures) and then read the sides of the pages every once in a while but he'll probably take more interest in that when he gets a little older. I am now buying this for any friends that play golf and have a new baby on the way.

This book series is wonderful. The poems are great and the detailed information about each sports' rules, history, highlights are interesting for kids and adults. Helps put each sport in context as the child is learning to play.

This review is for all of the Sleeping Bear Press alphabet books, including this one. These gems are terrific on many levels. The illustrations are captivating, and the narratives are accessible to emerging as well as fluent readers. And the topics are always of high interest. Good job, Sleeping Bear!
