Q. My young patrons are always looking for books about athletes and they often want to read about specific sports players such as gymnasts and baseball players. I always have trouble helping them find them. What should I do?
As a rule, when the story is about a young athlete we use the heading for the sport. Also, we don't use specific headings such as vaulting or shortstop. We simply use GYMNASTICS or BASEBALL.
