Acerca de


Text and photographs introduce a nine-year-old ski enthusiast from Sun Valley, Idaho.

From School Library Journal:

A book with staged, static photographs and bland narration, capturing none of the speed, exhilaration, or excitement associated with this sport. It simply introduces readers to a girl who lives in Sun Valley, Idaho, and who is a recreational skier. There is no focus--the text jumps from family skiing to scenes of nine-year-old Stephanie's classroom to leasing ski equipment. There's no logical order to any of it, including the girl's skiing prowess, which ranges from reviewing such techniques as sidestepping and snowplow stops before going up the mountain, to downhill racing a few pages later. The text is a series of non sequiturs about skiing, winning horse-show ribbons, loving pasta, and cross-country skiing with grandmother. And one can't help but question the audience, as this is not a how-to-ski book, not a look at a young athlete in training, and not an introduction to the sport (terminology is not defined). There's no schuss here. --Trev Jones , School Library Journal
