Getting a child started in a gymnastics program can be confusing for the parent. Terminology, exercises and safety are all concerns and so it is nice to start off with a well-written guide book to familiarize yourself... With colour photographs throughout, the book provides a step-by-step guide to getting started. Accompanying the photographs are descriptions of the warm-up exercises, basic skills, and cool down stretches. Schlegel also discusses competition training and profiles a number of important gymnasts. (Terry Peters North Shore News 2013-04-07)

An informative, visually appealing guide for any child who is interested in this popular sport. Highly recommended. (Michelle Brian, Librarian, Faculty of Education, U Canadian Materials 2012-11-16)

This timely book certainly provides children with a nice, positive introduction to a sport they can enjoy. (GoodReads 2012-10-01)
