Product Description
Product Details

Gr 4-7-In Moments, Middleton attempts to highlight memorable occasions, but the dry narrative does not convey their emotion and excitement, though the focus on high-interest sports like gymnastics and soccer may draw readers in. The book is slim enough to attract those looking for report resources, yet factual enough to provide a good overview. Its font size and the inclusion of color photographs on every page make it accessible for struggling readers. Unfortunately, the photographs are predictable (e.g., athletes in mid-leap over the hurdle) and do not convey an insider's perspective. Modern chronicles the rebirth of the games in 1896 and continues through to the present. The perfunctory treatment of the return of the competitions provides plenty of information for die-hard historians, but not enough high-interest details to engage reluctant readers.-H. H.
