March Madness has finally ended (in April, which is very confusing), baseball is in full swing (Twins home opener is on Friday, and I will be there!), and summer league slow-pitch softball for men is right around the corner (don't even ask). Sports are a big part of my life. In fact, every two years my life is consumed with the Olympics. (My obsession borders on crazy.)
Coincidentally, sports are also a big part of children's book publishing. Every season we do at least two series about sports (Jake Maddox, anyone?), and I doubt that will change any time soon. From My First Graphic Novel sports stories to Sports Illustrated chapter books, we have a great range of topics for every age group. Because really, can we ever have enough sports books?
