Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sue Poduska
Part of the "Extreme Sports" series, this is a good introduction to the variety of activities available to people on the move. As expected, swimming is introduced first. Diving, along with a warning about cliff diving, is included next. The author writes about the difficulties of water polo and the different kinds of skiing, including jet skiing. The reader learns about surfing, windsurfing, and body-boarding. Finally, wakeboarding and barefoot skiing are introduced. Readers are warned many times not to do any of the activities in an unsafe manner. The numerous detailed photographs always show athletes using the proper equipment to remain safe. Readers are also reminded to stay healthy enough to enjoy the activities without injury. The table of contents, brief glossary, "Find Out More" section with books and websites, and index help make this a useful guide. Just in time for the summer Olympics, readers can read about what they are watching. Reviewer: Sue Poduska
