Praise & Reviews

Junior Library Guild

  • Profiles eight stadiums, focusing on a different notable aspect of each—for instance, Cowboys Stadium’s impressive technology, the eco-friendly design of Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, and Beijing National Stadium’s distinctive “bird’s nest” shape.
  • Uses familiar objects and places, including school buses, animals, and bowling lanes to bring meaning to facts and figures that may otherwise be hard for kids to imagine. Comparisons range from straightforward (stretched out, the electric cables in ANZ Stadium “would be longer than the distance from New York City to Philadelphia”) to wacky (the steel in the roof of Soccer City Stadium in South Africa weighs as much as “1,900 really big hippopotamuses”).
  • The high-interest topic, approachable text, and eye-catching photographs will appeal to reluctant readers.
