Reed and his daddy went NUTS looking at behind-the-scenes photos and reading behind-the-scenes reports about the places, players and stories in sports. (Tessa and I peeked over their shoulders once or twice, but were not quite as gripped by seeing behind the Green Monster or how Staples Center is switched from a hockey rink to a basketball court in 4 hours).
From a press release:
(Fall, 2010), New York, NY – The editors of Sports Illustrated Kids present Sports Illustrated Kids: All Access (Sports Illustrated Kids; October 26, 2010; $19.95), your pass to behind-the-scenes photos of athletes, locker rooms and more.
Most fans experience sports from afar, but Sports Illustrated Kids gives you an All Access pass to the world of sports. In All Access, readers can unveil details by lifting up clear layers of acetate and go places they haven’t been. With over 50 photos, the 48-page hardcover book offers readers an up-close look at the coolest items, people and places in sports.
Divided into three sections, Athletes, Places and Gear, All Access gets up-close and personal with your favorite athletes, gives you an all-access tour to the best places in sports, and offers readers an inside look into the cool gear that helps athletes do their jobs.
All Access reveals:
- High Five! How does your hand measure up to Shaquille O'Neal’s?
