Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 4–7—Lively writing brings record-breaking moments across various sports to life with lots of colorful photos and trivia tidbits. Readers will be amazed at how long some records stand and how quickly others fall. Hockey's Greatest Records includes all-time goal scorer Wayne Gretzky, and Basketball's Record Breakers notes Wilt Chamberlain's most points scored in one game—records that have held for a long time and may never be broken. Other records, such as single season home runs discussed in Baseball's Record Breakers, include the infamous late-1990s record chase and the steroid controversy that followed. The appearance of the Sports Illustrated Kids logo throughout is sure to lure in readers, especially sports buffs. Proceed with caution; like all record books, these could become outdated very quickly. VERDICT Good fodder to satisfy browsers. Copyright 2017 School Library Journal.
