Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
BMX biking, or bicycle motocross, evolved as a sport just 30 years ago and is based on motocross, or dirt biking. Where motocross was about riding motorcycles on rough terrain, BMX began similarly, yet on bikes. Since then, riders have created their own new styles of riding, from freestyle to flatland to street. With a vivid presentation of color photos that catch riders getting "big air" off the ground and doing stunts that send them spinning and flipping, this book takes off at a quick pace and with an air of excitement. The reader is given a sense of the sport's history, a feel for what it takes to take bike riding to the extreme, and a chance to read about some of the most prominent athletes who have pursued this sport. The subject is covered from a high-motivational reading perspective, and the book's producers have included plenty of information for the young researcher who wants to read and perhaps write about a subject that is nothing but fun. Library bound, this selection includes a list of websites for further exploration, an index, and a glossary. It would have been nice to have seen the author's name on the cover. Nonetheless, readers are in for a delightful ride as they wind their way through this well-packaged book. This book is part of the "Extreme Sports No Limits" series. 2004, Crabtree Publishing Company, and Ages 8 to 9.
