A Sports Book That's Perfect for Fall

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been giving a sneak peek at what our fall list will bring. I've posted about books set in Afghanistan (Thunder over Kandahar) and Ethiopia (Cry of the Giraffe), and now it's time to move to North America and the wide world of sports.

In Game Day: Meet the People Who Make it Happen, Kevin Sylvester takes young readers on a tour of behind-the-scenes jobs in sports. From timekeepers to coaches, and from Zamboni drivers to organ players, there are many careers in sports beyond being an athlete. For more examples, click here to listen to Kevin's podcast about the book (podcasts are in alphabetical order by title), or watch this interview with him:
