Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Sophie's love of skating began at age three. By the ripe old age of eight she knows her destiny--to be a professional skater. Her day begins at 5 a.m. when she and her friends begin their warm-ups. Moves such as "Mohawks," three turns, spins, splits, spirals, etc. are depicted artistically but accurately. Sophie practices both her short program, 2 min. 40 sec. And her long program, 4 min. The basics, such as figures, are important as skaters must use both inside and outside edges and demonstrate their control of them. Isadora describes it all with knowing appreciation for the artistry and the technical skills required. The joy and the discipline of ice-skating are vividly portrayed. Professional skaters never stop practicing, but when you love it, the hard work is joyful. 1999, Putnam Publishing Group, Ages 4 to 9, $15.99. Reviewer: Jan Lieberman
Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Repeating the formula she used in Lili at Ballet (Putnam, 1993), Isadora turns her attention to figure skating, rounding out her story of a fictional child with relevant information about the sport. Young readers are sure to admire eight-year-old Sophie, who is pursuing her dream of becoming a professional ice skater. While she clearly loves to skate, her story emphasizes the hard work, time, and dedication required to excel in the sport. Captions for the watercolor illustrations sometimes provide informative facts but are the book's weakest aspect. (A novice skater's free skate would be shorter than indicated, and the position shown for "shoot the duck" is incorrect.) Even so, children will love poring over the pictures of children skating. Isadora remains one of the best at illustrating rhythm and athletic movement. Rely on stronger titles in your nonfiction section for the skating information, and save Sophie Skates for its picture of a likable girl hard at work becoming a star.-Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Sophie Skates

    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.

    Sophie Skates

    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!
