Hoop Kings 2: New Royalty

Written by Charles R. Smith Jr.

I requested this book in an effort to refresh my Poetry section. I will definitely be recommending it to the sports fans in our school. It is a collection of poems about some of the contemporary NBA stars whose names are familiar to kids. The poems are simple and easy to understand while incorporating vocabulary that is familiar and readable for even lower level readers. The photos and graphics are eye-catching and modern. I think this book could introduce poetry to students who are not really fans of the genre.
