The Jake Maddox Sports Series
by Jake Maddox (Author) Aburtov (Illustrator) Sean Tiffany (Illustrator)
Jake Maddox Sports stories are pumped-up, easy-to-read chapter books with an emphasis on speed, skill, and fair play, making them perfect for reluctant or emerging readers with a passion for action, adventure and sport. The boys and girls in these books face obstacles on the field, the court, the ice, or the half-pipe, and meet mental and social challenges as well. Readers discover that an athlete's inner game, persistence, and courage are just as important as a steady hand or a chance for a goal.
Teamed with Sean Tiffany's engaging illustrations, as well as bonus material such as discussion questions and writing prompts, the 'Jake Maddox' series is an excellent educational resource that kids aged 6+ won't want to put down.
