Reviews

Beautiful photos and simple, straight-forward text introduce young readers to the basics of a range of popular winter Olympic events. Some sports, like hockey, curling, and speed skating, cover one event, while others describe a great many. Freestyle skiers may all use similar equipment, but the events—aerials, moguls, slopestyle, big air, halfpipe, and crosscountry—are drastically different in both the skills required and time it takes to complete the courses. In addition to describing how each event rolls out, the books include equipment needed to participate, like sleds in luge or the different skates used in figure skating and hockey. Each book ends with a spotlight of a famous athlete, like the incredible Ester Ledecká, who is the first person ever to win gold in two separate sports (snowboarding and skiing). As far as informational picturebooks go, these are fine specimens. VERDICT A recommended first purchase.
