Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Fans of BMX bikes will be drawn in immediately with the opening page description of eight riders sailing through the air while attempting incredible stunts. Information on the history of "bicycle motocross" or BMX, their design, the competitions, safety and a brief one-page biography of Dave Mirra, a popular stunt rider, fill the twenty-nine pages. As with all the titles in the high interest "Wild Rides!" series, sentences are kept short, there is good use of white space on each page and there are color action photos to keep the reader involved. At the beginning of each of the four chapters there is a vertical border listing the topics covered, which is very helpful for struggling readers. There is a glossary with a pronunciation guide, a brief BIBLIOgraphy, and an index. The Internet and mailing addresses for the American Bicycle Association and the Canadian BMX Association are among those included. This will be a popular item. 2002, Capstone High-Interest Books,
