"Kids who like 'infotainment' will be drawn to these books that read like a novel but includes fact boxes, photographs and a glossary." —CM Magazine

Recordbooks are non-fiction stories that help reluctant readers understand history and social issues through the lens of the true story of a sports hero. Showing the process of social change on issues like racism, diversity and conflict, these books engage and provide historical context by telling the often-heroic story of how an athlete or a team worked to change attitudes around them.
