Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
As fans watch the rink during the Winter Games, they can get the inside scoop from 12-year-old figure skater Emily Hughes, who shares what goes into her practice schedule, the rewards of international competition, and her hopes and dreams for the future in I Am a Skater, photos by Jane Feldman, the fourth title in the Young Dreamers series. (Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
When I first picked up I Am a Skater, I looked at the cover photograph and thought, "She looks like the girl who just won the Olympic gold." Imagine my surprise when I turned to the dedication page where Feldman thanks Emily Hughes, and then goes on to thank Emily's family, including her sister Sarah (yes, the one who won the gold). I Am a Skater is a photo book focused on the life twelve-year-old Emily and how she became a figure skater. Feldman gives us photos of various practice sessions, including various jumps and skating moves with narration by Emily of the important aspects of each move. We also get a sense of the other activities that fill up Emily's day; Feldman treats us to pictures of the young skater at ballet and music lessons as well as serving as a junior coach to help the younger girls who are learning to skate. The photographer ends the book with two performances--one of Champions on Ice (featuring Michelle Kwan, Brian Boitano, Surya Bonaly, Elvis, Stojko, and Irina Slutskaya) and the other of Emily's exhibition during the intermission of a New York Rangers hockey game at Madison Square Garden. Overall, this is a charming book for girls who want to grow up to be the next Olympic Champion, as it provides a nice balance of the challenges as well as the joys of being an up-and-coming ice skater. Part of the "Young Dreamer" series. 2002, Random House, $16.99 and $14.99. Ages 7 to 12. Reviewer: Jean Boreen
School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-Skater follows Emily Hughes-the younger sister of gold medalist Sarah Hughes-as she practices, performs at Madison Square Garden, and goes behind the scenes at Champions on Ice to meet some of the sport's top practitioners. Feldman's crisp photographs in both color and black and white showcase the child on the ice, at home with her family, and meeting with her skate and costume designers. One spread shows her illustrating specific skating moves, such as a layback and a butterfly jump. Similar in scope and format to Jill Krementz's A Very Young Skater (Random, 1979; o.p.), this book should be a popular addition to sports collections.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
