review 1: This is the first novel in Betty Hick’s Gym Short series and is perfect for readers transitioning from brief simple text into longer, more complex texts. The book has large pictures that take up half of a page while the other half is devoted to the text. After reading this story I could have students get together with their reading groups and design a T-shirt for the group just like Henry did for his baseball team to boost their morale. The focus of the book could be on character traits. What T-shirt design could each group come up with that would represent everyone in the group.
review 2: UNBEATABLE TEAM--MAYBE. UNBEATABLE READING--FOR SURE! The first novel in Betty Hick's Gym Shorts series is a slam-dunk for newly-independent readers. Henry and his friends
... moreon Rockford Road are a basketball team unstoppable on their driveway court. But without team t-shirts or an official name can they take on The Tigers, a team that plays at the huge YWCA and has a player old enough to shave? Young readers will cheer as The Bats take on a name and stick together to beat the odds. less
