Jump Shot: Ready-to-Read Level 2 (Game Day) (Paperback)
This book is perfect for young, sports-obsessed fans who, in addition to watching and playing sports, crave the kind of expert knowledge that only an insider would know.
It’s game day, and a basketball referee arrives at the arena where he works. There’s a championship on the line, and he is excited. He visits the players’ locker rooms where the players are getting prepared mentally (learning about their opponents, and their own plays) and physically (stretching and getting taped up). He watches the teams warm up with a series of practice drills with their coaches and trainers and observes the court being primed for the game. The game begins with the narrator tossing up the jump ball at center court. Game on…
A special section in the back of the book is chock-full of even more facts about the game and its storied history and players. It is custom-made for the fan who absorbs all things basketball!
