School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-6-Skater follows Emily Hughes-the younger sister of gold medalist Sarah Hughes-as she practices, performs at Madison Square Garden, and goes behind the scenes at Champions on Ice to meet some of the sport's top practitioners. Feldman's crisp photographs in both color and black and white showcase the child on the ice, at home with her family, and meeting with her skate and costume designers. One spread shows her illustrating specific skating moves, such as a layback and a butterfly jump. Similar in scope and format to Jill Krementz's A Very Young Skater (Random, 1979; o.p.), this book should be a popular addition to sports collections.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
