From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-These books promote a variety of sports to encourage readers to exercise. Unfortunately, the approach is cursory at best. For example, in Dancing, there are no details about types of dances or techniques. Students should turn to Raintree's "Love to Dance" series for more specifics on this activity. Many of the same words and definitions are repeated throughout the volumes, such as "muscle," "energy," and "flexible." The set as a whole focuses more on fitness than on specific sports. In addition, many of the same facts are duplicated in the final "Healthy Body Files" sections. Five out of the texts (Yoga is the exception) use the same illustration and very similar language in the "Let's Get Physical" chapter. However, the large font and simple sentence structure will aid new readers. Colorful photographs show children participating in each sport. Select specific titles only to fill gaps in a collection. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
