School Library Journal Review

Gr 5 Up-Two titles that target young adults with low reading abilities. They are traditional high/low books, with wide margins and large print. However, the color photographs, which depict teens or adults, add appeal and are informative. Hiking provides the basics on safety, first aid, and survival techniques and suggests where to learn these skills. It gives advice on becoming physically fit and on proper clothing and equipment. Readers also learn about types of trails, planning the route, and calculating hiking time. Snowmobiling has interesting facts about the invention of the snowmobile, including two photographs of early models. It gives information on license requirements, trail permits, costs for a tour, and trail guides. Discussion of clothing, hypothermia, parts of a snowmobile (including a diagram), safety, driving techniques, and maintenance are also included. This series is not meant to give a complete overview of these sports. It does offer solid, introductory guidance in an attractive format, on topics of interest to this audience.-Michael McCullough, Byron-Bergen Middle School, Bergen, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
