My Take on the Book
If your child enjoys sports, I think this book would teach many new facts and provide hours of reading enjoyment. The book is divided into three sections: athletes, places and gear. There are hundreds of detailed photographs with well written text. The overlay pages do an excellent job of providing additional information with the addition of fun.
A very interesting overlay showed a "monster truck" weighing 11,000 pounds. When the overlay is removed, the reader is able to view the skeleton of the truck with all the parts and labels for each section. Another section describes in detail how a football is made. the overlay shows the step by step process which I found very interesting.
