PreS-Gr 2—Simplified text with an ample amount of sight words and repetition makes this sports series ideal for emergent readers. Short, basic descriptions of each sport, plus its gear, safety ideas, and a quick description of how to play, keep the books simple and the layouts uncluttered. Pages with short text passages are opposite colorful photos, and the text never exceeds four lines on a spread. Lots of big, colorful images feature happy young athletes. Far from extensive, these titles provide simple, inclusive options for beginning readers that will satisfy early elementary teachers, caregivers, and young kids.
VERDICT Good additions for beginning readers.
