Kid Konnection: All-Star Activity Book

Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you a book that will keep young sports fans busy!

Summary: Hours of fun await young sports fans with this must-have activity book from Sports Illustrated Kids!

Hidden pictures, dot‑to‑dot, trivia, word search, mazes, and funny fill‑ins are just some of the engrossing activities sports-loving kids will find in this full-color game book jam-packed with more than 150 photographs and illustrations. Have you ever wanted to know what quarterback shares your personality traits? There's a quiz for that! All the sports kids love--from soccer to baseball to gymnastics and more--are covered in the All-Star Activity Book making this the perfect companion for road trips, plane rides, or just keeping busy without screens after school. -- Liberty Street

In honor of a sports-filled weekend both for Penn State and the Super Bowl, I thought it would be fun to feature SPORTS ILLUSTRATED KIDS: ALL-STAR ACTIVITY BOOK. This book is a full of different activities for young sports fans aged 8 - 12; however, I will admit that I had fun with a few of the puzzles.

This 128 page softcover book is divided into chapter by sport and includes the ones you'd expect like football, baseball, and basketball. However, it also includes some you'd might be surprised to see like golf, tennis, hockey, and soccer. In addition to those sports, there are sections for the Olympics and All-Stars... so I think it's fair to say that sports enthusiasts will find something that will appeal to them.

Within in each section, there are a variety of activities including dot-to-dots, word searches, and mazes. There are also some activities that give kids a chance to show their creativity and illustrating skills. What I love about this book is that it's not all fun and games. It's also educational with blurbs on each page providing interesting tidbits about the various sports and athletes.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the color photographs in this book. It is a Sports Illustrated publication so you know you're going to get great photos! There are over 150 photographs and illustrations which make every page interesting even for the most reluctant of readers.

I think the ALL-STAR ACTIVITY BOOK is a fun way to keep your young sports fans entertained. Highly recommended!

Thanks to Blue Slip Media for providing a review copy of this book.
