Review
(The following is a combined review for Camping and Hiking; Skiing; Mountain Biking; Sailing; and ) Gr 4 – 6 — These books offer little new information about commonly covered sports. Each author provides a basic description of the activity and describes how to get started and the necessary equipment. A concluding chapter discusses the sport around the world. Action-filled photographs are cropped and arranged in a pleasing design of circles and rectangles. Some photos in Mountain Biking have a dizzying or blurred focus. Each book highlights at least one attention-grabbing point. Camping provides a paragraph on "Naithsmith's Rule," which estimates how long it will take to hike a specific distance. Skiing has a text box on "ski cross," a new activity. Sailing covers some step-by-step techniques in order to make a turn or to recover from capsizing. Possible replacements for older series.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA --Blair Christolon (Reviewed May 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 5, p130)
