Good Sports: Rhymes about Running, Jumping, Throwing, and More Illustrator Chris Raschka
A collection of rhymes about running, jumping, throwing and more. Prelustsky's short poems celebrate winning and losing, those who keep trying, those who play well, those who don't play well, and enjoying a sport.
The untitled poems are on many different sports: baseball, gymnastics, basketball frisbee, and many more. They are told in the first person as a child dreams of someday making the team, or making the shot, or catching the ball.
They capture the drama, excitement, and how it feels for those who play a sport.
