School Library Journal - 11/01/2023 Gr 2–5—Perennial favorite Sports Illustrated Kids is back with another thrilling series for young readers, this one all about great sports moments that have gone down in history. Soccer players like Lionel Messi, Carli Lloyd, and Tim Howard's record-breaking moments are detailed with exciting sports writing in Soccer Records Smashed! Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game and Liz Cambage's 53-point game bookend the phenomenal stories shared in Basketball Records Smashed! While football and baseball only have opportunities to highlight male athletes, every other sport has men and women who play professionally so all are celebrated. The international focus of Car Racing Records Smashed! is unique and appreciated. The narratives for each record smasher are short—some only two or three pages—but the message to readers is clear: Every game or match or race can be the source of an amazing moment. VERDICT It won't smash any circulation records, but this series will be a winner. - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
