Synopsis: An introduction to skateboarding's history, equipment, techniques, tricks, styles, and stars.
From Booklist: Reviewed with Liz Lark's Yoga.
Gr. 4-8. Sterling introduced their Flowmotion series for adults last year, and this year, a spin-off series of the same name debuts for kids, using the same unique format: a continuous series of stop-action photographs that demonstrate activities, step-by-step. The children pictured in both volumes often seem younger than the book's target audience, and the introduction to Yoga-- with small print, gloomy statistics, sophisticated language, and instructions for guiding children through to poses--is less for children than adults. Skateboarding is more accessible; it has helpful safety tips, a glossary of skating terms, and a diagram of a skateboard's components. The strength of both titles is the excellent instructions. Beneath photographs that flow across each spread and show movements from start to finish, are text bars providing more detailed applications, including, in Yoga, essential tips on when to breathe. Younger children will probably need an adult's help to get through the texts, but these books offer outstanding visual introductions to their subjects for browsing or focused learning.
