Review quote

"The Start to Finish: Sports Gear series adds a new twist to a dependable line of books. Each title opens with a child enjoying his sports equipment and wondering, 'How was it made?' The answer unfolds in a series of double-page spreads spotlighting the manufacturing process. On each right-hand page, a large color photo shows one step in making and assembling the components that become the finished product. The facing page carries a few short sentences of text commenting on the process. While the photos show a racially diverse group of adults making the products, the few children picture all appear to be boys. Still, the topic is manufacturing, and these well-focused books do a good job of showing what happens in the factories. In From Leather to Basketball Shoes, pieces of leather are cut, stitched, and glued to the molded midsole and outsole before the basketball shoes are laced, boxed, and sent to stores. From Plastic to Soccer Ball explains construction of the plastic-coated cloth ball and the insertion of an inflatable bladder inside it. From Steel to Bicycle goes from the making of a steel-tube frame to the conveyor belt where workers add wheels, handlebars, pedals, and seats. Colorful page design, large type, and clear photos make the series an attractive choice for young readers." --Booklist
