Children's Literature - Cheri StowersYou can almost feel the crisp, fresh air and hear the sound of the snowboards gliding down the mountain as you flip through the pages of this energizing book. Young snowboarding fans will enjoy the child-friendly format such as simple text and bright, full-color action photographs of young snowboarders enjoying the thrill and speed of their sport. Specific aspects relevant to snowboarding such as equipment and safety are covered in a fun, inviting way. The book includes many useful features such as subject- specific vocabulary words, which are defined in a glossary, a table of contents, an index, a list of Internet sites related to the book, and a list of supplemental books. A great book for reading aloud or independent reading. A good resource for an oral or written reports. Useful for generating discussions about exercise and sports. Children who enjoy this type of sports book will want to look for other books in the "Pebble Plus, Sports and Activities" series.
School Library JournalK-Gr 2-These titles are visually inviting and well written, with a limited word count that doesn't shortchange readers on vocabulary. DeGezelle offers an appealing look at snowboarding. This text consists of a mere 90 well-chosen words. Ice-Skate! introduces readers to the joy of skating, both indoors and out. However, the Web sites listed are about all winter sports, and they are not geared toward the intended audience. Both books offer full-color, full-page action shots of youngsters engaged in the sports described. These titles are more appealing than Edana Eckart's books on the same sports (Children's Press) and are for a younger audience than the "Action Sports" series (Chelsea House).-Debbie Whitbeck, West Ottawa Public Schools, Holland, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
