I am sharing a number of books today beginning with:
HOW TO PLAY BASKETBALL
By Lawance Turner (author) and Alycia Mulgrew (editor)
Xochitl Justice Press
Themes: Basketball, Sportsmanship, Friendship
The story begins –
Basketball is fun because you get to play with your friends.
This easy reader features a group of black boys as they explain how to play basketball. The text is clear and easy to read. Vocabulary is highlighted and explained within the text. The book is illustrated with actual photographs of the boys playing and demonstrating the different aspects of the sport.
This book will appeal to young athletes who will be excited to find a book that they can read themselves.
It is great to see a book celebrating young black boys who obviously love basketball. I only wish that girls had also been included.
Thank you to Lawrance Turner and Xochitl Justice Press for the opportunity to review HOW TO PLAY PASKETBALL.
