My First Book of Lacrosse, the fifth book in the best-selling Rookie Book series from Sports Illustrated Kids, explains this fast-growing sport to young readers. A fun guide for beginning readers, My First Book of Lacrosse introduces kids to the plays, positions, and basics of lacrosse through a visual retelling of a professional game. From the face-off to the game-winning goal, checking, scooping, passing, and more are all explained using simple text, cool graphics, and real Major League Lacrosse and college-level photography to help young kids feel like they are on the field experiencing the game. Illustrated "rookie" characters—a girl and a boy—appear on every page to guide kids through the book as they read alone or along with their lacrosse-loving (or bewildered) parent.
