This is a poetry book that rhymes about running, jumping, throwing, and more. This book would be appealing to kids that enjoy any type of sport activities. The poems are short but praising all-year-round games. The illustrations are delightful and happy, displaying positive emotions of kids playing sports.

This book of poems is all about different kinds of sports and activities including baseball, soccer, gymnastics, basketball, swimming, football, Frisbee, ice skating, swimming, and roller blading. The text was mediocre and the illustrations were very abstract.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375837000, Hardcover)

Exhilarating, all-new, kid-friendly rhymes capture the range of emotions, from winning to losing to the sheer joy of participating, that children experience as they discover the games of their choice. Jack Prelutsky, a virtuoso at making poetry fun for the elementary school crowd, includes in this inspired collection poems about baseball, soccer, football, skating, swimming, gymnastics, basketball, karate, and more. His signature lighthearted humor in verse that trips off the tongue is coupled here with the 2006 Caldecott Medal winner Chris Raschka's lickety-split, stylized (and stylish) watercolors. Every page is a blaze of color and motion. Whether Good Sports will create good sports remains to be seen, but it will prove to young boys (and girls) that reading poetry can be fun.
