As a figure skating household I ve been skating for 27 years and my 4 year old daughter has been skating for 3 years we love it I LOVED this book a gift for my grandaughter for several reasons First of all, being an alphabet book, it was appropriate for a very young skater However, the content and added information on each alphabet entry made this book an excellent choice for an older skater as well Finally, I LOVED the illustrations EXCELLENT Over the years of following skating, I have come to always expect excellence from Kurt Browning A is for Axel did NOT disappoint From Holding An Edge To Laces And Hooks, A Four Time World Champion And Professional Figure Skater Explains The History, Techniques, And Memorable Moments Of The Sport Of Ice Skating By The Illustrator Of Z Is For Zamboni A Hockey Alphabet My 8 and 10 year old loved this book Bought it for them as a Christmas gift Pictures are great and we learned a lot of history about ice skating from this book. My daughter figure skates, and she loved this book when she was five Now she is ten, and we are getting this book for our little friend who is almost six She also skates, and I know she will love it I would recommend this book to a child any age very fun to read, and educational too Neat and informative book that I really enjoyed reading.but was a bit wordy for my little one I just read the basic part of it to her and leave the fluff for me. For my 4 year old granddaughter who is in U.S A Basic figure skating Anything skating suits her Very nice book for a young skater. It defines the key terms in figure skating and it is perfect for the novice with an interest in competitive skating.
