Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Hot Streaks from School Library Journal on November 1, 2019

Cover: College Basketball Hot Streaks

Sports history’s biggest hot streaks and longest held records come to life with vivid writing in this compelling series. Readers will learn about Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak, Orel Hershiser’s 59 consecutive scoreless innings, and the 2017 Cleveland Indians’ 22-game winning streak in MLB Hot Streaks. Most of the other books in the series are less about ‘streaks’ than they are about incredible, hard-to-beat records, like Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game in NBA Hot Streaks, Hope Solo’s record 102 career shutouts in Soccer Hot Streaks, and undefeated seasons from soccer’s Arsenal, the NCAA football team the Miami Hurricanes, and the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. Olympics Hot Streaks includes Michael Phelps’s record-breaking eight gold medals won at a single Olympics. Reflection questions at the end of each book allow readers to react to what they’ve read. VERDICT Everyone wins when this series is on the shelf.
