Librarian Review of Let's Get Outdoors!

These titles in the Let’s Get Outdoors! series delve into winter sports through straightforward explanations and vivid pictures. Each title describes the skills needed to participate in each sport, gear requirements, safety precautions, variations of the sport, and places to participate. Cross-country Skiing explains that classic and skate skiing are two different types of cross-country skiing. Skiers learn that green circles indicate easy ski runs and two black diamonds are for experts only in Downhill Skiing. In Ice Skating, readers discover the different types of skates for figure skating, ice hockey, and speed skating. Snowshoeing reveals that longer snowshoes are used in power snow, and shorter snowshoes are used on packed snow or steep, icy trails. Each book includes easy to understand diagrams with labels to help children identify the different types of equipment and movements needed for the sport. This series is a superb way to encourage children to try or learn about new sports!
