Children's Literature
Do you know a child who yearns to hit the slopes, on skis or snowboards? Maybe there's a budding Olympian who needs information about winter sports? This is the book for all skiing and snowboarding actual or aspirational aficionados and an excellent source for research projects. It should prove to be the essential first stop for any child exploring the ins and outs of these popular winter sports. Part of the U.S. Olympic Committee's "Olympic Guides" sports series, this well-done edition comprehensively discusses its topic. It smartly capitalizes on the 2002 Winter Olympics and the interest generated by these games. The book also seeks to capture the attention of young adults who are perceived to be the next generation of skiing/snowboarding enthusiasts. From each sport's history to rules, equipment, safety tips and how-to instructions, this title is impressively, almost encyclopedically, detailed. The prose is also tailored to young readers and should not prove difficult to comprehend. After acquiring this book, stand back and watch the powder fly. 2002, Gareth Stevens Publishing,
