Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Joan Jackman's The Young Gymnast offers a balanced take on a favored form of exercise for both girls and boys; the book features 200-plus photos and a foreword by Olympic gymnastics medalist Shannon Miller (Dorling Kindersley, $15.95, ages 8-11 ISBN 1-56458-677-4 Apr.).
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-7. Young sports enthusiasts will enjoy this book with its many full-color photos of gymnasts in action. After an introduction by 1993 world champion gymnast Shannon Miller and a brief history of the sport, the book talks about clothing and equipment. Then it deals with the basic tumbling and the balancing skills needed to perform headstands, handstands, cartwheels, round-offs, and more. The author provides information on artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, sports acrobatics, and competition rules. A glossary and useful addresses are included. The book will probably appeal most to young girls, as the photos are predominantly, although not exclusively, of females. Susan DeRonne

This book is great for young gymnasts. Or any age as a matter of fact. The foreword is by Shannon Miller, America's most decorated gymnast. This book tells you how to do some basic skills and warm-ups. It covers each apparatus in gymnastics, including rhythmic and sports acrobatics. If you're a gymnast, then this is the book for you.

Format: Hardcover
I thought that it was a good book for just beginning, but if you want to get it make sure you are just starting or it will be all stuff you already know and it wont be of very much use. I was in level 2 when i got it, but i think it would be of more use if i got it last year.

I was disappointed with the number of pages in the book and the book is pretty basic suitable for 4-6 years old. I purchased the book for an 8 year old. I may need to return the book.

Format: Hardcover
When I got this book, I hadn't even started gymnastics. So I could't do most of the stuff in it. So I only recommend it to people who are beginners and who's coach has already gone over it.
