Grade 4-8–The idea of these books is terrific, but the execution is flawed. The full-spread, full-color photographs are cluttered with boxes containing specific facts and numerous math problems based on details and records, but this material is not related to the photos. Only Crime seems to ask readers to re-create the thinking of a detective. The other volumes propose math problems based on information about the race-car circuit or the numbers of attempted board tricks rather than determining the needed speed, distance, and other details to accomplish a feat. At first sight, students will grab these books but will quickly label them "lame" as interest dissipates. Additionally, only Extreme Sports posts a warning about students trying these tricks. This advice should have certainly been included in the stunt volume as well. Unfortunately, the effort to interest young people in reading and math fails.–Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI
