Sports Are Fantastic Fun!

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Kindergarten
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Cycling, ice hockey, athletics, tennis . . .There are so many sports and they’re all fabulous! Soccer is great, except when your team keeps shooting and missing. Horse-riding is wonderful—so long as the horse does what the rider wants. Running, cycling, and swimming require agility and endurance. Other sports like ballet are not about speed but strength and style.

Sports lovers small and big will find the one they love best—and some surprises—in this witty picture book, presented with charming characters and laconic commentary.
