Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 4-6. Each chapter of this book covers either a skill or a character trait that creates a successful hockey player. Included are such basic concepts as speed, agility, teamwork, and consistency. The chapters consist mostly of a dozen or so short quotes from professional players and coaches. Some of the quotes deal with specific advice about parts of the game; most are of the sports cliche variety. Intermixed with the text are plenty of full-color, clear, action-packed photographs that may be the most appealing aspect of the book for young hockey fans. Readers who know the game may desire a little more meat along with the large heapings of inspiration. Others, probably those who as adults will enjoy hearing motivational speakers, can lace up their skates will new determination. Todd Morning

I wanted more like Laura Stamm's ,"Power Skating"...not just a colorful book idolizing athletes.

It is better for very young skaters interested in ice hockey.
