By Shannon Lukens on March 5, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book is great! It's a must-have for anyone with small children who are learning to ski, or will soon be taking their first lesson. It's beautifully illustrated with animals. You'll find a tiger tearing it up, a shredding raccoon, mice in the moguls and a powder-hound giraffe.

The copy is short and sweet. It mixes in ski tips for the kids, such as, "Since the sun is so bright, and the snow is so white, egrets wear shades to protect their eye sight." Another page says, "To slow down, just make pizza, it's all you need know. The bigger the slice, the slower you go." The kids don't realize it, but they're learning something while reading it.

There's even something for Mom and Dad. In the back of the book is a list of ski tips on how to keep your kids safe on the slopes, and have fun during their lessons.
I have written about this book in my ski column called My Rockies!

This whimsical book beautifully introduces children (& adults) to the joy of learning to ski (& snowboard). Several different animals review the essentials for a successful day of fun riding on the snow. The words are simple, yet specific; complemented by stunning animal paintings and a cute story. Makes a wonderful gift for any youngster interested in skiing.

I bought this for my 3 year old son just before his first ski trip. As a life long skier, i couldn't wait to read it to him. What a disappointment, especially for $14.95. There's no plot, no logical discussion of the process--put on your boots, carry your skis, get on the lift etc. It's basically a bunch of random animals--a crab, a fish etc posed on a ski slope. I'm online now shopping for a good ski book for children.

We love this book. It's one of our favorites now. We got it before our ski trip to Utah with our two year old. Even if you don't ski, you'd enjoy it.

This is an enjoyable book written by an author who I was fortunate to meet while backpacking in the High Sierras. The author, Rick Sanger, is also a US Forrest Ranger for part of the year; he lives/works in a High Sierra backcountry ranger station with his wife and adorable young daughter. Rick's kindness and unique story telling abilities inspired me to purchase this book for my nieces, and they loved this book.
