When Cammi Granato, the captain of the U. S. Hockey team, accepted the Olympic gold medal in 1998 for women's hockey, the entire world took note. Although women have been playing hockey for over 100 years, that single event seemed to bring attention to this sport overnight. Readers will learn about the history of the game, as well as the rules and required equipment for playing. Windows on each page introduce some of the key players in the professional level of this sport. Throughout the book, hints are given for making the game more fun. The inclusion of an index, and a selection of photographs from actual games, both amateur and professional, make this an excellent introduction for those with an interest in the sport. 2000, Pleasant Company, $12.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
School Library Journal
Gr 3-7-While young athletes will glean a few pointers from this slim book, the information provided is somewhat limited. Double-page illustrated spreads reminiscent of a scrapbook cover such topics as equipment, positions, training, scoring, and stars of the game. There is a useful section on how to care for equipment and readers will enjoy the interview with Karyn Bye. Unfortunately, the book is poorly written and some of the full-color photographs are small while others are unfocused. Barbara Stewart's She Shoots-She Scores (Firefly, 1998) is a better choice.-Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
