Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
In Neolithic times, human beings were runners. As hunter gatherers, our distant ancestors often had to pad along on foot, trotting after game. On the hunt, tight-knit hunting groups might cover mile after mile jogging along in search of sustenance. Now, running remains a common feature of many games and activities that people from childhood through adulthood participate in. In this book, younger readers are provided an illustrated introduction to the sport of running. Topics include warming up, staying fit, breaking into the sport, nutrition, and competitive running. The focus of the narrative switches from running as a leisure activity to more organized and competitive endeavors. Throughout, the concise narrative moves at a steady pace while also offering reasonable guidance to potential runners. This book is a sound introduction to an activity as old as humanity. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
