Uses a story about a young girl who loves to ice skate to introduce the sport: the parts and care of skates, the techniques of different skating moves, and ice skating competitions.

What a sensational book. It is both informative and fun to look at. I loved the illustrations which brought back memories of when I began ice skating. I am now a mother of a 12 year old daughter who ice skates. She showed Sophie Skates to her skating friends and they loved it too. By the way my daughter's name is Sophie. I hope Rachel Isadora will add to her Sophie books like she did with her Lili books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am an ice skating coach and I found this book in Barnes and Noble. It's about time a kid's book concerning this subject has come out- and one that is really for children. The illustrations, captions, accuracy and warmth are what makes this book so special. I have so many students who will be able to realate to Sophie and her training. I just can't tell you enough how wonderful this book is. It will also prove enjoyable for those nonskaters as well. Agreat book is a great book!Was this review helpful?
