A noteworthy review of Women's Professional Basketball from School Library Journal on April 1, 2020

Young readers will be inspired by the accomplishments of professional women’s basketball players spotlighted in this series. WNBA Records and Trivia has a different record called out on each spread, illustrated with great action shots of the stars mentioned—notably Diana Taurasi; who holds records for all-time points, all-time free throws made, most three-point shots made, and most points in a season. Superstars and Young Stars highlight all the best female ballers, listing their accomplishments and stats in quick overviews. All-Time Best includes Lisa Leslie and Sheryl Swoopes, two players from the first season of the WNBA who are both Basketball Hall of Fame inductees. The books aren’t packed with information, but they have an inspiring, hopeful tone. VERDICT Your shelves are probably missing influential women ballers—this set will fix that gap. Highly recommended.
