School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-This attractive balance of informative text and instructive pictures covers the techniques, equipment, rules, and safety requirements of the sport. The book is well organized and offers numerous, clever practice tips for beginners in sidebars. Words in bold are well defined within the text, but are not necessarily listed in the brief, half-page glossary. The mixture of colorful action photos and labeled or captioned sketches that emphasize technique feature both boys and girls. A welcome addition to sports shelves.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
