It's poetry in motion in Lee Bennett Hopkins' newest anthology of verse for beginning readers! Nikki Grimes, Myra Cohn Livingston, J. Patrick Lewis and ten more poets contribute to this dynamic collection of sports poems. From finishing first to coming in last and from scoring the winning goal to watching it all from the sidelines, the world of sports is celebrated with humor and insight while exuberant illustrations capture the energy and emotion of each poem. This poet's-eye-view of athletics is a winner!

Hero

October comes with
Chill air--
Golden sun--

A football game--
A score of
Six to zero--

And my brother runs
A winning touchdown
And becomes
My instant hero.

By Tom Robert Shields
