Discover the science of basketball!
The third book in the How Sports Work series, How Basketball Works follows the highly successful How Hockey Works and How Baseball Works.
Keltie Thomas’s energetic style of writing, and Greg Hall’s witty illustrations complement each other once again. This slam dunk team now presents an enthusiastic look into the science of basketball.
A lively, vibrant design comes together with charismatic illustrations and striking photos of pro players past and present. Engaging running text is complemented by "Quick Hit" factoids, "Star" highlights with stories of the pros, "Tips" providing hints for improving your own game, and fun "Try This" activities to help develop related skills. "Legends of the Game" pages in each chapter put the spotlight on the most significant players and events in basketball’s history. A "Rules and Regs" section and glossary are jam-packed with the lowdown on the lingo and need-to-know information to make any reader an expert at the basics of the game.
