Children's LiteraturePerfect for the aspiring young gymnast or any child with an interest in being active and living a healthy lifestyle, this is one of five books in the “Gymnastics” set published by Snap books. It is a great resource for tips and suggestions on training to be a gymnast, including specific stretches, workouts, and healthy eating practices. From suggested warm-up moves to ideas for high-energy snacks, this provides a terrific starting point for the beginning athlete. The modern, colorful format which includes exciting photographs, quotes from famous athletes, and fun facts throughout, will hold the interest of even young readers. Though technical terms are often used, a glossary in the back will help increase the reader’s knowledge about the specialized vocabulary of gymnastic competitions. Special features include a list of materials for further reading and Internet sites for children who want to know more. A great book for dance and gymnastics teachers to keep handy, as well as for any parent of a future Olympic athlete. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
