A popular sport played both indoors and outdoors, volleyball is a fast-paced game that requires teamwork. This book serves up the basic rules and positions of the game for young readers. It features photos that show players performing volleys, blocks, and spikes. From Booklist: This entry in the Sports Starters series offers a solid overview of volleyball, from rules and scoring to basic moves. The accessible text lays out clear explanations of terms and concepts, and words that appear in bold throughout are defined in an appended glossary. The eye-catching design combines large color photos of athletes in action with smaller inset pictures that further illustrate specifics such as ball handling and referee signals; captions make clear what’s happening in each image. The book’s single drawing offers a very useful aerial view of players’ positions on the court. The print is large, but hip fonts and straightforward text that doesn’t talk down will appeal to older struggling readers. Grades 2-4. --Gillian Engberg "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

This engaging wordbook offers a primer for young children on the essential words and phrases associated with twenty-three different sports. From badminton to volleyball, each on their own two-page spread, readers can peruse the vocabulary words to explore how the sport is played, what equipment is required, what athletes wear and the like. For example, included on the football spread are ?touchdown pass,? ?end zone? and ?helmet.? For swimming, there are ?goggles,? ?lane markers? and ?crawl.? The illustrations, in bright primary colors, also provide a quick tutorial on the basics of each sport. Humorous asides and silly dialogue throughout add to the book's overall lively and amusing feel. For example, a golf ball inside an alligator's mouth becomes an ?unplayable ball.? And a diver leaping off the highest platform comments, ?What a view!? Also in keeping with the light tone of the book, there's a spread in the middle called Halftime, which features searching and counting activities. Award-winning illustrator Benoit Tardif cleverly imparts the sense of fun involved in playing sports, along with lots of useful information. This is a book that will be pored over by small children, each looking for their own favorite sport or trying to learn more about new ones. The short descriptions of the included sports and the glossary at the back of the book mean it also works in physical education lessons for young pre-readers up to the early elementary grades

Telling the inspiring human story behind the creation of the Paralympics, this young readers biography artfully combines archival photos, full-color illustrations, and a riveting narrative to honor the life of Ludwig Guttmann, whose work profoundly changed so many lives. Dedicating his life to helping patients labeled incurables," Ludwig Guttmann fought for the rights of paraplegics to live a full life. The young doctor believed-and eventually proved-that physical movement is key to healing, a discovery that led him to create the first Paralympic Games. Told with moving text and lively illustrations, and featuring the life stories of athletes from the Paralympic Games Ludwig helped create, this story of the man who saved lives through sports will inspire readers of all backgrounds."
