Hold on to your cowboy hats and prepare for a wild read! In this book, you'll learn all about the bucking horses, lively livestock, and daring riders of the rodeo world. You'll read about roping, riding, racing, wrestling, and more! You'll also discover the breeds of rodeo horses, how riders handle and care for their animals, and how cattle herding became a rough-and-tumble sport. From Booklist: A love of horses is a common enough affliction among children, though many may be surprised that there are so many ways to gad about on horseback. The Horsing Around series, with plenty of action photos and a layout that evokes the grainy woods of stables and barns, details the different equipment, breeds, techniques, and competitions associated with each corner of the equestrian world. A definite notch up on the adrenaline scale, the always crowd-pleasing bucking broncs get the spotlight in Rodeo, though the book nicely conveys that there’s more to the show than just holding on for dear life. Each book ends with a brief sketch of famous horses and riders and a collection of historical tidbits to enhance readers’ familiarity with the sport. Parents may have appreciated some information on how a love of horses can put a serious dent in the checking account, but this series is nonetheless an invaluable resource for introducing aspiring riders to the distinct substrata of the equestrian world. Grades 3-5. --Ian Chipman "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Every year, the NCAA, NBA, and WNBA crown a league champion. Every four years, basketball teams from all over the world compete for Olympic gold. This exciting book explores historic moments in championship basketball and the top teams that have played in these amazing games. From School Library Journal: Gr 4-6-These slim volumes are packed with information and incorporate graphics, color photos, and bold fonts to explain the rules, history, major teams and players, and skills of the sport. Ruling the Court focuses on championship play, including March Madness and the Paralympic Games. Women and girls share the limelight; a girls' basketball team huddled round their coach graces the cover of Full Court Press. Interspersed with photos are numerous info boxes. Some pages appear cluttered, but the busy layout can also be effective. The authors describe passing, shooting, and rebounding, as well as defensive skills, warming up, and good sportsmanship. VERDICT Though the organization and focus is loose and unfocused, fans will find plenty of interesting nuggets of information in these accessible books.α(c) Copyright 2011.

Professional hockey is a fast game, and a dangerous one. Skates slice like razors; a hard-shot puck can take out an eye; and the ice surface is as hard as rock, especially when skulls are slammed against it. Innovations in equipment make the game faster and more exciting -- and have to be countered by measures that keep it safe for players. From hockey heroes like Jacques Plante, Mario Lemieux, and Sidney Crosby, to an avid 11-year-old player on a mission, there have been players who have campaigned to make hockey a safer game. They have done this often in the face of denials and opposition from league managers, sports writers, fans, and sometimes other players, too. But they've persisted and made the game safer for players of all ages. This book tells the story of hockey's safety stars, the opposition they faced, and how they persisted and ultimately succeeded in their campaigns. [Fry reading level - 4.4

Describes show jumping competitions, including its history, how it it scored, and the best horse breeds for the sport. From Booklist: A love of horses is a common enough affliction among children, though many may be surprised that there are so many ways to gad about on horseback. The Horsing Around series, with plenty of action photos and a layout that evokes the grainy woods of stables and barns, details the different equipment, breeds, techniques, and competitions associated with each corner of the equestrian world. Finding somewhat of a middle ground between the gracefulness of dressage and the rowdiness of rodeo, Show Jumping showcases how the excitement of dashing about and leaping over fences is married with technical precision and plenty of pageantry. Each book ends with a brief sketch of famous horses and riders and a collection of historical tidbits to enhance readers’ familiarity with the sport. Parents may have appreciated some information on how a love of horses can put a serious dent in the checking account, but this series is nonetheless an invaluable resource for introducing aspiring riders to the distinct substrata of the equestrian world.
