Sporty Kids: Basketball by Felice Arena
Published by Puffin Books
This book is about Jessica, she’s a basketball star. Her teammates and coach all know that Jess is the best. She loves everything about basketball and can’t wait for each game. Jessica is so good because she has a secret weapon… Her lucky shoes. She wears them in every game and they never let her down. Then the unthinkable happens. Her dog chews the lucky shoes up. There were three other pairs of shoes there, but the dog only eats her lucky basketball shoes. Now Jessica has to play without her good luck charm. Jessica doesn’t want to play, but she can’t let her team down. Is she really good or was it all the shoes?
My favourite part of this book was when the dog chose to chew only her lucky basketball shoes. It was funny because the dog didn’t go for any of the other shoes, just hers. Maybe lucky shoes taste better than normal shoes?
I think Sporty Kids: Basketball is a good book for kids who like sport. There are other books in this series. This one would be perfect if you play basketball, but there are others if you have a different favourite sport. I enjoyed reading this book because I like basketball and it was easy to read.
