Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Ice-skating is one of the most popular Olympic sports and also a sport that consistently receives high television rating. One of the reasons is the beauty, grace and skill of recent women figure skating stars. In this chapter book, kids are introduced to four medal-winning skaters: Kristi Yamaguchi, Oksana Baiul, Nancy Kerrigan, and Michelle Kwan. Their lives and their introduction to skating were all very different. Kristi overcame a birth defect (clubfeet), and Oksana survived in spite of being a penniless orphan. What they share is the determination, discipline, and talent that make true champions. Their brief looks at their lives are interesting and inspirational. A good choice for reluctant readers.
