Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
New readers with a passion for all things sports will enjoy this explanation of sports equipment for the feet. Everything from surfboards to ice skates, and skateboards to water skis are succinctly featured in this volume. The text does a very nice job of labeling the proper parts of each piece of equipment from the waist of a snowboard to the toe stop of roller skates. The pictures are a good mix of children and adults using the equipment and are mostly action shots that will engage readers. A short quiz is featured at the end so readers can assess their comprehension skills. This book has controlled vocabulary and a simple structure that will be easy for new readers to follow. Non-fiction beginning reader books tend to be in demand, especially for sports lovers, so libraries with a thriving beginning reader population should consider this volume and check out the others in this "Sandcastle Sports Gear" series.
