Named the Indianapolis Colts, the team with the simple horseshoe on their helmet is anything but simple. Originally they were called the Baltimore Colts. When their team owner wanted a new stadium and Maryland would not comply, he moved them to Indianapolis. Interestingly, the Colts today are known for the same style of play they had when in Baltimore and when they were winning Super Bowls. Johnny Unitas led the Colts with his amazing passing prowess. Today it is in that same tradition that Peyton Manning, son of former professional football quarterback Archie Manning, is using to lead a talented and determined team. Mark Stewart has written a colorful and informative book. Color photographs grace the pages and make the legendary Colts come alive. As with other titles in the “Team Spirit” series, Stewart not only describes the history and skill of the Colts, but their team play and strong bonds as a professional athletic team. Included are numerous sections of facts and player quotes, as well as sections for further exploration. This book provides fun and information to the young reader. A good addition to any library.

Young sports fans will welcome this series’ offerings covering major basketball, football, and baseball teams. Each book begins with an introduction to the team, some history, and information on the team today. The venue in which the team plays is described with many statistics. The team’s uniforms, and the changes these have had over the years, as well as an introduction to the parts of the uniform specific to each sport, are covered. The books give vital statistics on pioneers and super stars of each team. Unfamiliar words related to the sport are typed in bold and explained in either the glossary, or in a separate section of “other words to know.” A section of “Fun Facts” offers supplemental information, such as Joe DiMaggio marrying Marilyn Monroe or David Robinson growing nine inches during his time at the Naval Academy. Records are listed, and a list of places to visit, as well as books, Web sites, and a map showing the birthplaces of the players, make these books useful for the browsing fan or the student doing a report on a favorite team. The tone is consistently positive, and controversy related to the team is kept out of the discussions. This series is valuable for the youngest sports fans. Timeline. Index. Recommended.
