This is a fun follow-up to the book Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do by the same authors and illustrator. It also seems fitting to have a sports themed book with the upcoming summer Olympics. The book is set up with a rhyme about a type of sport with corresponding items on a clothesline. Readers get to guess the sport and find out if they are right on the next page. Additionally, readers can look for a mischievous squirrel that appears on multiple pages throughout.
One thing that is appreciated in this book (as with the previous one) is that men, women, and diverse skin tones are all portrayed playing the different sports. Finally, the story concludes with a question for readers: “what sport would you like to try out today?” This participatory picture book is recommended for ages 3 and up.
