Sports books for kids

Football Books for Kids:

Using the illustrations is a great way for pre-readers to explore and “read” independently or with you. They can take a picture walk to predict what the story is going to be about, describe the parts of the story such as the characters or setting, and work on concepts of print. 


What Is A Picture Book?

A picture book is simply a book that has pictures. The illustrations help tell the story and describe the parts. The illustrations can be just as important or even more important than the words.
