This book provides an in-depth look at the history of the Miami Heat basketball team, which was placed in Florida, by the NBA, beginning in the 1988-89 season. It explores many well known Miami Heat players, the arenas they have played in, some of their greatest coaches, their best seasons, their colors and uniforms, and the diversity of their loyal fans. The books in this series include a timeline, fun facts, player’s quotes, classic debates, records, and a map that pinpoints the locations of a list of team facts. There are action photos, press photos, copies of collector cards, and magazine covers. These books contain a table of contents, a glossary, an index, and a list of additional book titles about the sport of basketball. They even include an internet link to Team Spirit’s Fast Break which provides up to date information and photos of all the teams in the Team Spirit series. This series “aligns to the common core state standards requirements for reading information text” and would be a great addition to any school library. This series includes 30 titles, one for each team in the NBA. Highly Recommended.
