Audience: 3rd Grade - 6th Grade
Full of bright photographs and vivid descriptions, Extreme Sports by Lynette Evans is a riveting introduction to the world of extreme sports. Evans encompasses a wide range of the extremes, from rock climbing and surfing to mountain boarders and extreme ironing (yes, extreme ironing!). The book also includes vocabulary-expanding insets, tips for critical reading, and a glossary of helpful terms. While the book shows how exciting and fun extreme sports can be, it also highlights the many dangers associated with the extreme behaviors of these athletes. The book does not pass judgment either way and leaves it up to readers to consider the pros and cons of extreme sporting events.
