From Booklist:

A volume in the Kid’s Guide to Martial Arts series from Rosen’s PowerKids line, this offers a simple introduction to the venerable Chinese martial art. Beginning with a definition of kung fu (“hard work”), the book proceeds to a brief discussion of history and styles, followed by such specific topics as equipment, stances, strikes, kicks, and more, and concludes with a very brief look at “Kung Fu Language,” which focuses on martial arts–related words. Printed with green backgrounds, the pages are heavily illustrated with full-color photographs, principally of young people demonstrating various moves. That the book is targeted at both boy and girl readers is evidenced by the presence of girls in many of the pictures. Simple and straightforward, the accompanying text is a good complement to the information-filled pictures. A glossary, index, and brief bibliography are appended to this useful survey. Grades 3-5. --Michael Cart

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Each title begins with an account of the history and equipment used and then moves into describing warm-up exercises, techniques, and styles. Most titles extend the cultural learning with charts that show how to count in the language of the country where the sport originated (for example, Korean in Tae Kwon Do), and introduce phrases with a pronunciation guide. High-energy, color photographs of various sizes move readers through the pages. Both children and adults are pictured enjoying the sport. If a more detailed look at the individual sport of karate is needed, Oliver Press's "Karate Made Simple" (2013) would be preferred. This broad series can update an aging collection. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
