"With lively, full-color photos, eye-catching infographics, and easy, readable text, these offerings will grab the attention of eager readers. The biggest names in the game are called out in Basketball Superstars and Football Superstars, both titles giving brief snapshots of some of the most famous players in their respective fields. Aside from these two offerings that contain fairly standard fare, the other selections in this series have much more to offer in terms of STEAM subjects. In addition to game-related statistics, Basketball Teams by the Numbers prompts readers to recognize the sizable gender pay gap in professional basketball. Football Science and Basketball Science will have the most curricular resonance, with discussion of force and movement as they pertain to sports. Unfortunately, concussions are not discussed in Football Science. Overall, there is good information here for those just beginning to familiarize themselves with basketball and football, but seasoned pros won't find much new news. VERDICT An additional purchase."
