Review by School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Lerner keeps the ball rolling with these books (previous series include "Super Science Infographics" and "Super Social Studies Infographics"). As with previous titles, these are closer to attractively presented factoids than true infographics. However, there is plenty of fun material for sports fans (diagram of a baseball, player sizes over the years), and these bright, well-designed offerings are a cut above most athletic-oriented titles.

Review by Horn Book Review

Although there is a paragraph of text on each page, the colorful and instructive infographics (datelines, graphs, charts, etc.) constitute the main narratives of these broad introductions to four major sports, providing unusual statistics and science-based explanations. While pages are cluttered and sometimes hard to read, reluctant readers may find the visual approach appealing. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers the following Super Sports Infographics titles: Super Baseball Infographics, Super Football Infographics, Super Basketball Infographics, and Super Hockey Infographics.] (c) Copyright 2015.
