So you have a young sports fan who is about to take a long plane or car trip. Or it may be that their baseball or softball game has been rained out and they are bummed out. Want to be the hero of the day? Here is just the thing. All of the major sports and more are represented in this book of activities that will entertain for hours. Each sports section begins with a set of six frames that highlight greats from the sport. After that, there are several activities that feature aspects and heroes of the game. Did Roger Federer really wear a pink tutu at Centre Court? If not, you can mark that on the Wimbledon Look-And-Find. How well do you know your football terms? Use the clues on the Gridiron Grid to fill out the crossword puzzle. There are plenty of games for students who like wordplay or who just like to draw. Create your own golf hole or retell the Miracle on Ice in your own words. This book would be a great stocking stuffer or a reward for a job well done.
