Basketball’s Greatest Players by S.A. Kramer –OPTIONAL

Kramer, S.A Basketballs Greatest Players 48 pgs. Random House, 2015. $3.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G EARLY READER
This book features short chapters about 5 great basketball players such as Wilt chamberlain, Michael Jordan, and Larry Bird. A photograph of the player in action starts each chapter, followed by dropping the reader right into an action packed game, then going back to provide information about the childhood of the player, major career highlights, and stats.
This is an early reader level 5, so 2-4 grades. I would put this at the upper end of that spectrum, as it doesn’t hold back with the real life facts like suicide, murder, AIDS, ect. I bet the audience for this short book will be mostly K-2 grade, so if you feel like monitoring it, and holding it for the mid grade readers, then it might work for you!
