Gr 4-8-Reluctant readers interested in how to execute specific events may find this series useful. However, although the text is clear and concise, there are no diagrams or step-by-step photographs to accompany the explanations of the specific skills. Clear, full-page color photographs show young adults performing an element of each technique described. Each title has five chapters; for example, Jumps includes chapters on "The Long Jump," "The Triple Jump," "The High Jump," "The Pole Vault," and "Training Tips." Most readers will benefit from having all track-and-field events in one book, instead of splitting them up into individual titles.-Diane Olivo-Posner, Long Beach Public Library, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
