Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Every four years, millions of television viewers across the globe tune in to watch men and women gymnasts compete in the Summer Olympic Games. The sport of gymnastics draws attention because the athletes who compete in it possess such a rare combination of strength, skill, and grace. You only need to watch a top gymnast perform once to realize how utterly challenging even the simplest moves are in a sport that often defies belief in terms of its technical difficulty. This supremely challenging sport is described by Beth Gruber in her compact and illustrated book. Gymnastics for Fun Gruber describes the basic apparatus, team competitions, individual training regimens, and components of a sport that requires tremendous commitment on the part of its adherents. This book is part of a multi-volume series entitled "Sports for Fun" and offers younger readers a nice once-over-lightly approach to gymnastics. Readers will come away with a greater appreciation of the skills that gymnasts possess and the commitment they have made to excel in a sport that has great visual appeal. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 8 to 10.
