    I have very limited knowledge of the sports, but that is what makes this book is so wonderful. The stories are not just about sports, but about friendship, perseverance, moral character, and overcoming life challenges. While sports sets the backdrop, the true message goes a lot deeper. Which makes The Sports Pages a valuable addition to any classroom or home library.
