About this title

Synopsis:

Newbery Honor author Brooks delivers a lavish, high-intensity counting picture book of basketball superstars in action--including an all-star pictorial of the 50 greatest NBA players of all time!.

From Booklist:

Ages 5^-8. Here's the concept: each double-page spread features one number (1 to 10, 20, 30, 40, 50), a phrase using that number ("1 alert dribbler," "9 slammin' dunkers"), a paragraph discussing that aspect of basketball, and one or more pictures of NBA play action. The book has strengths: excellent photographs featuring current NBA stars, intelligent commentary, and bright, bold design. Unfortunately, the weaknesses become more apparent with each turn of the page: a shifting sense of audience (Would kids old enough to follow the discussions of basketball still need a concept book on numbers?); some basic imprecision (If they do need practice counting, why don't the pictures for "20 sensational shoes" have 20 sensational shoes in them?); and the visual commotion that results when as many as 13 photos appear on the same spread, with no borders to separate them. Although it could have been better, libraries may still want to offer this book, especially to reluctant readers. Carolyn Phelan
