ALA Booklist
Each book in the Sports All-Stars series showcases an exceptional athlete and opens with an event from the last 18 months. Kawhi Leonard leads off with a 2017 NBA playoff game against the Houston Rockets, in which Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs came from behind to win. After the opening chapter, each book looks at the athlete's younger years, introduces their families and their activities outside sports, and concludes with their overall achievements. In addition, Fishman makes a point of discussing each individual's choices when it comes to fitness, diet, and exercise routines. Written in short sentences, the books are accessible to some primary-grade readers, but the straightforward design and the many clearly reproduced action photos ensure that they will appeal to older kids as well. Well-chosen cover photos will draw sports fans to this attractive series.
