As much as I love reading books with Broxton, it is also fun to get the Sports Illustrated for Kids Books that has fun information.  These books are not only fun for Broxton to learn cool sports facts, it is also fun for us to read and the boys enjoy them as well.  When the Big Book of Who All-Stars book showed up, I was eager to see how much Sports Knowledge the guys in my life knew...
This book says " THE 101 ATHLETES EVER FAN NEEDS TO KNOW."
The contents inside?  

Baseball, Basketball, Football, Golf, Hockey, Olympics, Racing, Soccer, Tennis and Xtreme.

Up first?  I flipped over to GOLF and called up my brother to see if he knew all the answers....
A sample question: "Who is the golfer with the most Major championships?"  
Answer - Jack Nicklaus....
Of course, my brother knew all of them, I did wish they had more golf questions, as there was only 4.  I know not everyone is into golf, but since my brother has ALWAYS been a fan, I have sort of followed it... so, it would have been nice for more golf information for the golf fans!

I really enjoyed this book...
Each athlete you "meet" you get to see a picture of them... and then there is a question that has them as the answer, with a nice sized paragraph explaining the answer.  Also, on some athletes, you get a "Super Stat" about them as well.  It comes in a little side paragraph and it is pretty cool...
Example:
The question : " Who was employed as Manchester United's mascot years before becoming their star player?    (Answer - David Beckham.)  I thought that was cool, as I never knew that... There is a nice sized paragraph talking about his years as a mascot before becoming their player and giving more information.  Then, to the side, you see Super Stat:3 - Number of different World Cups at which Beckham scored a goal (1998, 2000, and '06), the only Englishman ever to do so.  
This is a nice hard back book with plenty of colorful photographs that are sure to get any sports fans attention!  This would be a great book to gift... or to take on a road trip for a bit of road trip trivia!
