About this title

Synopsis:

You want intense? How about dropping from a helicopter onto a fresh field of powder, then skiing down a mountain? Heliskiers go where there are no trails, but there is a lot of danger and excitement. Find out where people go heliskiing, how they avoid deadly avalanches, and which skiing superstars are the best in the world. This title will allow students to determine the main idea of a text, recount the key details, and explain how they support the main idea.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-Fascinating details and amazing photos add context and perspective to each sport's overview. Unusual sports such as heliskiing and skydiving are clearly explained, and the text is supplemented by well-chosen graphics. A sequence of three photos in Skateboarding details the steps in an ollie, a basic skateboarding move. An image in Big Wave Surfing offers an underwater view of a duck dive, as a surfer pushes her board safely under the lip of a wave. Each volume offers questions to answer while reading, a set of vocabulary words to look for, and a series of questions to respond to after reading the book. Motocross mentions female stars such as Sue Fish and Tarah Geiger, as well as James "Bubba" Stewart, the first African American to win a major motocross championship. VERDICT These well-written books earn high marks.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
