How to Improve at Swimming

"The 'How to Improve At' sports series provides tips on advance skills and basics alike, with a little under 50 pages of facts inviting kids in grades 4-6 to understand each sports' requirements for improvement and advancement. The step-by-step photos leave nothing puzzling and are keys to better understanding, elevating these beyond the usual blends of history and text discussion." —The Midwest Book Review, 04/08 "Crabtree Publishing Company has a well-established reputation for quality informational book series. They continue to solidify that reputation with the new "How to Improve at..." series of instructional sports books. Each book is illustrated throughout with numerous large, colourful photographs. The information-rich pages contain considerable white space which, when combined with the large print and user-friendly layout, make the books easy to read. Similarly, the detailed photographs and systematic instructions are easy to follow and seem almost assured of providing assistance to young sports people. I expect the "How to Improve at..." series of books to be a popular resource for children eager to develop their talents at a range of sports." — CM Magazine, 04/08
