School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-8-These series entries were previously published as The Young Swimmer (1997), The Young Martial Arts Enthusiast (1997), and The Young Ice Skater (1998, all DK). Other than different covers and very slight changes to the text and layout, they are identical to the earlier versions. All are handsomely presented in the typical DK style (clear, ful1-color photos and detailed captions) and are superior in coverage and illustration to other basic books on these topics. There is no reason to purchase these new editions, however, unless the earlier ones need replacing.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
