The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life by Kwame Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book will have mass appeal. I love that there are quotes from both males and females. While basketball is the main theme throughout the book, athletes that play a variety of sports are represented in the quotes. There are even some quotes from other inspiring people mixed in! The graphics are engaging. The text is short and packs a punch. The organizational structure of the book is a basketball game (complete with warm up, halftime, and overtime). Each "quarter" has a separate focus- grit, motivation, focus, teamwork, etc. for A kid could pick this up, read a page or two, and then close the book and ponder for a while. Once again, Kwame does not disappoint.
