Synopsis: Describes the history, current organization, including teams, leagues, and championships, and techniques of wrestling.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-- Each of these "how to" books follows a similar pattern, beginning with a brief history of the title sport, a look at the organizations that govern it on the amateur level, and then--the bulk of the book--instruction in the training and techniques involved. In a dry writing style, Gutman offers straightforward, accurate instructions, and in most cases a fairly detailed description of the basics required to succeed in each sport (although Track & Field ignores common events such as the shotput, discus, and triple jump). Unfortunately, some may be put off by the format. Possibly intimidating to reluctant readers are the first few pages of each book; while the text appears in a rather large typeface, it nearly fills the entire page, and is unbroken by illustrations or diagrams. Some of the color photographs are of poor quality, and the watercolor paintings are barely average. There's a nice mix of ethnic groups. Although safety is continually stressed, Wrestling contains an illustration of a boy bench - pressing weights, without a waist belt, and on a bench that is much too wide. Track & Field addresses both boys and girls, while Wrestling and Ice Hockey depict only males and Field Hockey only females. For children looking for facts, these titles will meet their needs, but they are not very attractive. --Tom S. Hurlburt, Rio Rancho Public Library, NM
