About this title


The author shares a wealth of information concerning the use of numbers on uniforms in sports, describing how athletes feel about their numbers and recounting wacky stunts inspired by those numbers

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-These books try to carve out a niche in the junior sports set by focusing on two offbeat aspects: players' quirky reasons for choosing uniform numbers and their superstitious practices before, during, and after games. Well researched and loaded with detail, both titles are written in a straightforward, somewhat dry manner. The author focuses on relatively recent incidents and current major-league players so that his young audience will recognize the names. Clever, black-and-white cartoons relate directly to the texts and add much-needed humor. The problem is in how to read the books. One anecdote after another is relayed without any organization by sport or other method. Children can look up their favorite players in the index, but plowing through all 64 pages from start to finish is tedious and unlikely. Absolute sports fanatics may find these books appealing, but most readers in this age group are looking for materials on their favorite teams or players. Purchase only if your sports section is loaded and you are looking to supplement it with additional titles.
