Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the world of major team sports perhaps none is faster paced than ice hockey. With players flying down the ice at top speeds, pucks traveling more than 100 miles per hour, and body checks driving players into the boards, hockey is a sport that moves at a rapid clip. For potential players and spectators, hockey can be a somewhat mystifying game. The six-ounce puck is difficult to follow and much of the game's action occurs away from it. Thus, it may be very helpful for novices to the sport to have a simple guidebook that details what it is about. Sandra Will has provided such an outline in this concise and illustrated work. In Hockey for Fun the author offers readers a quick run down of the main rules and elements of this sport. She describes hockey's rules, strategy, history, and flavor. This is a short book but one that also provides a nice overview of a sport that has international appeal. Readers will come away with a better appreciation of a game that combines complex athletic skills with power and grace. The book is part of the "Sports for Fun" series. 2004 Compass Point Books, Ages 8 to 10.
