Gr 2-4-Even as it celebrates the on-court success of these NBA superstars, this series places equal weight on their charitable works. Each slim volume follows a star from his youth, including the role family played in his life, to the present, with a generous helping of full-page color photographs. The bibliographies contain articles from major publications, and Sandler enlivens the text with quotations. Though the titles lack clearly stated basic facts (dates of birth, for example) and other information that would have fleshed out the lives of these athletes, young basketball fans will surely enjoy the photographs and stats about the game.
