Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Generating enthusiasm and positive energy to motivate teams to victory, cheerleaders contribute a lot to sporting events and competitions. In the 1880s, the first U. S. college cheer was recorded at a Princeton University football game. Around the 1920s, women began to be included in the formerly all-male activity. But history is not what this book is all about. Today there are over three million U.S. cheerleaders, ages 6 to 34. The author (whose 13-year-old daughter began dance and cheerleading training at age 2) covers all the basics. Fist, arm, and leg motions are named and described. Sample chants and cheers are provided for practice. Readers are encouraged to create their own word/motion combinations, as well as to write their own chants and cheers. Significant details like the use of pom pons, rules of chants and cheers, and warm-up stretches for jumps are reviewed. The two-page glossary covers key terms like back spotters, touchdown, flyer, and Herkie. An index plus Internet and book references are contained in the last of the 64 pages. "Let's Go Team: Cheers, Dance, March," a 12-book series, includes Going to College, Cheerleading Stars, and Techniques of Dance for Cheerleading. 2003, Mason Crest Publishers,

Gr 6 Up-Anyone who doesn't consider cheerleading a sport should take a look at these titles. Novices will enjoy the clear descriptions of routines and tips on how to get started while advanced athletes can gain some helpful hints. Chants introduces readers to the difference between a chant and a cheer; selections that can be personalized for a particular team appear throughout the book. Jumps are described and illustrated with clear, color photos. Techniques discusses the similarities and differences between dance and cheerleading as well as stretching, attitude, and nutrition. One chapter considers choreography. Both books stress safety, with mention that it is important to have a coach and/or a spotter present. While the photos enhance the presentations, only one picture shows male participants.-Kim Carlson, Monticello High School, IA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
