“Most readers know that ice hockey is an Olympic sport, but few will know that curling, a much older sport, is as well. This book gives a simplified overview of both sports, focuses on their place in recent Olympic games, and presents a few highlights from Olympic matches. Readers will undoubtedly be intrigued by curling’s use of slippery shoes, brooms, and large stones rather than the skates, sticks, and pucks of hockey. So, too, the physicality of hockey stands in contrast to the calm focus of the curling rink, where players employ strategic maneuvers to get their stones into a target-like circle. Minimal text, large font, and multiple color action photographs make this entry in the Winter Olympic Sports series interesting for young sports enthusiasts and accessible for reluctant readers.”—J. B. Petty
