Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Melasi
When playing sports an athlete has to be as strong at the end of a game as they were in the beginning. To achieve the proper level of aerobic fitness, an athlete forms a foundation by building up aerobic fitness. This fitness is built in many ways, including walking, jogging, biking, using an elliptical machine, or even in imitating the movements in their particular sport. An athlete wants their heart to beat 65-75 percent of its maximum heart rate during athletic exertion. Anything more and the body stops using the oxygen supplied by the heart, and the activity becomes an aerobic exercise. Some endurance sports include distance running, swimming and bicycling. For these sports, an athlete must focus on technique to build stamina so they can last during competition. Cooling down by stretching the muscles is just as important as warming them up. Frederick does a great job using large, vivid photographs to explain that building stamina and endurance makes a huge impact on how energy lasts throughout a competition. The words and easy-to-read sentences make this book a fun read. It is an interesting book for children and parents to read together. The book is a great way for teen athletes to learn about building stamina to improve athletic performance. Reviewer: Beverly Melasi
