Review
(The following is a combined review for Fitness for Young People Step-by-Step; Basketball Step-by-Step; Baseball Step-by-Step; Magic Step-by-Step; Soccer Step-by-Step; and Skateboarding Step-by-Step) Gr 5-8– The introductions to these books explain the goal of each sport, key vocabulary, the playing area, basic rules, equipment, and warm-up stretches. Colorful photographs show the entire movement of each skill presented, giving new meaning to the term “step-by-step.” Progression borders at the bottom of the pages highlight the salient points to notice in performing each skill from beginning to end. For example, the border in Fitness instructs readers how to regulate their breathing while performing various exercises, and one in Basketball explains the steps needed to execute a chest pass (“end dribble, gather ball, step forward…”). Fitness becomes repetitive, but the other books are more successful. Except Magic and Baseball , the titles show players, including women, of the same age as the books’ audience. Unfortunately, the skateboarders are portrayed with the minimum of safety equipment, the helmet, and it is doubtful that all the soccer players are wearing shin guards. Select individual titles as needed. --Blair Christolon (Reviewed November 1, 2009) (School Library Journal, vol 55, issue 11, p52)
