Gr 2–4—Using clear language, these titles walk kids through the signs of common sports-related injuries and then explain what to do in the event of one (it's almost always "Get an adult"). The variability of healing times show how serious some situations can be; for broken teeth, players get back in the game quickly, while for others (like bone breaks and concussions), the healing time is longer, and can include rehabilitation. A story about a notable professional who has sustained one of these common injuries is featured at the end of each volume. With the focus on sports safety in today's world, the content here isn't new, but it could be helpful in explaining to children why they can't get back in the game right away.
