Grade 2-6-These titles are almost identical to The Young Gymnast (1995) and The Young Soccer Player (1994, both DK); the only perceptible differences are the photos on the endpapers and the ISBNs. Gymnastics covers the history of the sport and routines using the typical colorful photographs for which the publisher is known. Soccer presents basic skills and rules of the game. If the older editions are in good condition, it is not necessary to purchase these "Superguides."-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
