Good Sports

By: Jack Prelutsky
illustrated by: Chris Raschka
Imprint: Dragonfly Books
ISBN: 9780375865589
2011-02-08 - $7.99

Exhilarating, all-new, kid-friendly verses capture the range of emotions, from the thrill of winning to the agony of losing to the sheer joy of participating.  Jack Prelutsky, America's first children's poet laureate and a virtuoso at making poetry fun for the elementary school crowd, includes in this collection poems about the popular sports that kids play—team sports, individual sports, and even backyard frisbee tossing. The bouncy rhymes beg to be read aloud and lend themselves to easy recitation. Caldecott Medal Winner Chris Raschka's stylized watercolors are a blaze of color and motion. An ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book of 2007, this exuberant picture book proves that poetry can be as much fun as playing games!
