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 kids on the move. The author notes that many wheeled vehicles use human power, while others use engines. Safety equipment is especially important for wheel sports. Mountain biking also requires specially designed bikes. Mountain bikes are often used in competitions such as downhill racing, cross-country racing, dirt jumping, and street riding. Another specialty ride is luge. The author touches on Formula One, NASCAR, inline skating, karting, and freestyle motocross. The numerous detailed photographs usually show athletes using the proper equipment to remain safe. Readers are also reminded to stay healthy enough to enjoy the activities without injury. The author even introduces proper sit up techniques. 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 some Olympic sports. Reviewer: Sue Poduska
