March Madness: Basketball Books for Every Kid (ages 4 and up)!

This basketball post was inspired by The Harlem Globetrotters video that I watched on The Kid Should See This. It’s a wonderful combination of Stomp and the Globetrotters.

Then I learned of the sad passing of the “crown prince” of basketball Meadowlark Lemon at age 82 just recently so I dedicate this list to him. He brought so much joy to everyone with his basketball skill and humor.

Even though my kids are not currently playing basketball, I believe that basketball is for everyone. My kids’ elementary school uses the NCAA basketball playoffs for a March Madness Reading Competition that gets everyone reading like crazy in order to win an extra Physical Education session. The competition itself is more about reading than basketball, but each class draws a college team and extra points are earned if the team does well.

Basketball for sport. Basketball as music. Basketball to get kids reading. It’s very versatile!

Why not read basketball books this March to get in on the madness? What are you favorite basketball books? Thanks for sharing! Read more…
