Reviews

Book Review: The Inside Story of Track and Field
"...The beauty of this title is the diversity and depth of coverage of all track field events...the tone is positive, informational and motivational. There is a tremendous amount of content and data within these covers making it a prime choice for middle schoolers...the larger typeface and effective design of the text layout makes this accessible for my elementary students. It's a good choice with colorful action shots and I am happy to add this to my collection."
