Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shelly McCoy
Part of the "For fun!" series of books geared towards some of the less traditional sports, this title explores the thrill and challenge of bow hunting—using a bow and arrow to hunt for wild animals. Patience, love of nature, and lots of practice is needed for this sport. The short chapters on such topics as types of bows, laws, and famous bow hunters feature vibrant pictures, colorful graphics, and short bits of information to create an interesting and fast read. Although more boys may initially be interested in this type of sport, it is pleasing to see that girls are included in the photos used in the book, plus one professional woman bow hunter is featured. A couple of chapters on hunting ethics and conservation could lead to good class discussions about these topics, but there is also value in including the book as one in the series to give another example of recreational activities that readers could explore further.
