Sports: To play? To Read? (Or both?)
Boys might like to play sports, but they will love to read them, too. And to be fair, girls (and adults) will enjoy Guys Read: The Sports Pages (edited by Jon Scieszka), too.
Even if you do not enjoy playing sports you will enjoy reading these ten stories that will have you cheering, wrestling with questions, family, classmates, Derek Jeter and other sports opponents. You’ll be running and finding home plate, making touchdowns as each story unfolds to its finally seconds on the clock.
From ten acclaimed authors (and a few surprise quests) each story has hints of humor, love and trying to understand who you are and where you are going. Find your favorite author or even a new one as Joseph Bruchac; Chris Crutcher, Tim Green, Dan Gutman, Gordon Korman, Chris Rylander, Anne Ursu and Jacqueline Woodson take you to the world of sports.
James Brown and Dustin Brown add stories of their own personal journey through their relative sports. You get to peek into the lives of two men you only knew from the sports pages or television screen.
Learn how a lucky grapefruit won the world series; an 18-year-old was playing for the NHL; what friendship really means and you’ll understand why Derek Jeter must die (even if you are a Yankee fan…after all, all the facts are as plain as can be!) Serious humor and reflective this third addition to the Guys Read series makes the perfect follow up to how we first were introduced to Scieszka’s series.
