Gr 2-4–This series engages readers with its conversational style, large fonts, and full-page photographs, limns each team’s history and describes logos and uniforms, home fields, fans, mascots, and traditions. The San Antonio Spurs, for example, celebrate major wins with a boat parade along the city’s famed River Walk. The brief information is augmented by well-chosen photographs. Los Angeles Lakers offers crisp shots of the team stars of past and present, from Wilt Chamberlain to Kobe Bryant; additionally, there’s a courtside photo of celebrity fans Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio. Both Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees do a satisfactory job of telescoping the teams’ illustrious history into these rigidly compact easy readers.
