Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Small is one of only eight pediatric sports specialists in the United States and has a lifelong goal of helping children with sports injuries or medical conditions so that they can participate fully in sports whenever appropriate. A former athlete and coach, Small is an M.D. and the founder of the Sports Medicine Center for Young Athletes. This easy-to-read book offers a detailed approach to appropriate sports activities for children of all ages. It will give parents and coaches wonderful bits of information about what sports are suitable for what age, what stretching exercises are appropriate, how to prevent and treat injuries, and how to plan sports programs for children with chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes. The book stresses the importance of good nutrition and exercise and underscores the fact that sports can help improve self-esteem. Each chapter has a Q&A section in which Small answers all the commonly asked questions regarding specific sports issues. Small's work is especially relevant today, as some 30 million children now participate in individual and group sports and because children are becoming more competitive at an earlier age. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries. Tim Delaney, Canisius Coll., Buffalo, NY

This book is about children and the appropriate participation of sports at different age levels.

In addition, although this book was written by by a highly trained physician, I found it to be very user friendly and easy to comprehend.

As a physical therapist that treats adults and children, I am often faced with the same questions Dr. Small has answered in his book.

Dr. Small has covered all bases in this extremely informative, well layed-out book.
His outlines, questions and answers, and diagrams provide a clear cut guide for parents. As a physical therapist that treats adults and children, I am often faced with the same questions Dr. Small has answered in his book. Besides being a great guide for parents, it is an excellent reference for rehab professionals, coaches and any other professionals who work with kids' sports.
