First sentence: "Andre loved football."

Publisher's Summary: "After his broken arm heals, Andre is nervous to play quarterback in the next football game. Will his arm be ready to throw?"

Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Press.

Reason for Reading: I am fond of these beginning readers.

This series of readers is for beginning readers.  This one is at a RL of 1.0.  The first couple of pages show how to read a graphic novel showing the direction the panels are read and then showing the direction text and balloons should by read. A book that is graphically well-designed for optimum reading experience and a story which is both interesting and applicable to young children's lives.  Harpster's illustrations are bold and realistic.
