Gr 2–4—In uncomplicated terms, the author describes the basics of how each sport finds its champion. The history, rules, and background of the World Series, Stanley Cup, Super Bowl, and NCAA March Madness bracket system are complex, but readers who are unfamiliar with these playoffs will walk away with a solid foundational knowledge after perusing these volumes. Tons of lively graphics and fact callouts, peppered throughout each book, direct attention and will keep reluctant readers and browsers interested. Each volume wraps up with a few wow moments, such as David Tyree's famous 2007 Helmet Catch that helped the Giants win the Super Bowl. With tales of Hall of Fame caliber, athletes making game-changing plays, and modern stars who'll no doubt shine in more moments, these slim titles will keep students cheering.
VERDICT There's crossover between reluctant readers and sports fans—pass this series to both.
