OVERVIEW
“Kids will be shooting hoops in no time after reading this volume of the Let’s Play series.” —Booklist

PLAY BALL! This photographic picture book is the perfect resource to get your little athlete ready for their first basketball game or practice.
 
How do you score points? What do I wear to a game? Who is going to be on my team? How can I get better outside of practice? Basketball can be complicated, but this unique book has all the information a kid needs before trying to get the ball into the hoop. Filled with diagrams, helpful photos, and even practice tips, it helps young athletes prepare for their first season and understand the most important elements of their sport.
PRAISE
“Kids will be shooting hoops in no time after reading this volume of the Let’s Play series (3 titles). This introductory basketball guide keeps things simple so readers will have no trouble understanding and absorbing the basics of the sport, from player positions and dribbling to scoring points and playing defense. The no-frills design will keep readers focused on the information, a combination of short paragraphs and clearly described, numbered steps for how certain skills are executed. The book’s photographs show a wonderful array of children playing this popular sport, both in terms of gender and race, and the text always boasts a supportive and encouraging tone. The basics are covered for practice and game-day play, and a final note to parents reminds them to exhibit good sportsmanship from the stands.” —Booklist
