Balls by Michael J. Rosen, 2006
Baseballs, basketballs soccer balls, footballs, tennis balls, hand balls, golf balls, volley balls ping pong (er..table tennis) balls and odd balls are all described, dissected, and detailed. Do you know how footballs are made? Do you want to understand the dynamics of a golf ball?
The book is well written with an easy to read and well designed layout.
Many of the chapters have a "Ball of Fame" section. "Wilson" from the movie Cast Away is featured in the volleyball section. The book invites browsing and the large clear photos invite the reader into the book.
This is a nonfiction gotta have it!
Did you know there are three types of tennis balls that may be used in a tennis match?
