Personal Response:
I liked this book because I really enjoy playing basketball but I rate it 3/5 because I think it is very hard to find the message it gives. It is literally just stating the rules and procedures of the sport. No personal experiences or stories.
Recommendation:
I recommend this book to any kid that wants to start playing basketball because it definitely is somewhere to start. ...more

I volunteer with a literacy program, and the boys with whom I've read this book love it. One even decided to go back and read it again! The kids I read with all love basketball, and seeing familiar words helps them with reading comprehension and fluency. I also appreciate the illustrator's choice to portray a mix of boys and girls, and children of different racial backgrounds. This makes it easier for readers of various backgrounds to connect with the book, and promotes a spirit of inclusion.

The book includes information on how basketball is played, along with narrative of a game between two made-up teams. This blend appeals to a young reader's desire to learn about the rules, while also holding their attention through a simple story -- which team will win?

I believe this would be considered a J/K book on the Scholastic Guided Reading Levels. ...more
