Rich with facts, play-by-play game details, and an abundance of archival photographs, these volumes provide engaging histories of four NBA teams. In each book, coaches and players are highlighted (e.g., from Celtics legends Bill Russell and Larry Bird to contemporary stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett). The volume pairs a pedestrian rhyming text ("Gather 'round the pool. / Not too close or you'll get wet! / The wondrous world of water sports / is Win our alphabet") with more detailed - and more interesting - factual explanations, printed alongside the illustrations. Straightforward text provides very general facts about unusual sports stadiums from around the world; their notable design elements, such as eco-friendly features, unusual lighting, or a movable grass field, are noted.
