Check out these great sports-themed titles. Books are suggested for First Grade, but remember that every Reader is different, and may find something interesting at another level.
Lucas loves basketball, but he repeatedly takes shots that are either too far away or from a bad spot, and the whole team is mad at him--will a benching remind him that sometimes he has to pass the ball?.
"Mo Jackson is excited for his baseball game, but Coach Marie tells him he is batting last and playing right field, again. Will Mo ever get a hit?"--.
A young boy participating in a sports day learns what it means to be mentally, emotionally, and physically strong.
Oddrey's back for a third adventure, this time bringing her exuberant spirit to the soccer field. Maybelline encourages Oddrey to join the school team, the Piccadilla Bees, and it's not long until their big game against the Quagville Crushers. The Bees struggle to find their stride, but Oddrey is convinced she has a solution. True to form, she thinks that if her teammates bring their own individual talents - dancing, karate-kicking, and cartwheeling - to bear on the problem, they may just have a shot at winning! At least they'll have fun.
Pedro would love to be the goalie in the team's first game, but another boy is bigger--so all his friends come over to help him practice before the tryout.
