Grade 1–4—These sports-themed stories are comparable to average early readers. In Adverbs, sports announcer Buzz Star gives a play-by-play account of the King of Swing Classic golf tournament. He returns in Pronouns for the big High Hoops Trophy basketball game. Readers will find the relevant part of speech highlighted in bold throughout each book, with definitions and explanatory notes (referred to as "Hole-in-One Hints" and "Hoop Hints") in text boxes every few pages. Presented in large font with ample white space and polished, cartoon-style illustrations, these stories may interest dedicated sports fans in need of an alternative lesson strategy. However, readers with more neutral tastes may be bored by the lack of drama, or turned off by the repeated use of sports vocabulary. Teachers will appreciate the succinct recap of grammar rules that follows each story, as well as the "All-Star Activity" and accompanying answer key. Best used for grammar practice rather than as reference works, these titles should be considered additional purchases where sports stories are a common request.—Jayne Damron, Farmington Community Library, MI
