Super Skills

Super Skills series by Stephanie Turnball

Packed with useful advice and practical tips, these well-illustrated guides are good introductions. Even kids with expertise in the subjects will find something new and interesting to try. Step-by-step instructions are exceptionally well written and easy to follow, although the books quite properly note that practice-sometimes a great deal of it-may be necessary in order to master a skill such as juggling, while other activities, such as using papier-mache, tolerate a high degree of imprecision. Of particular note are the "What's Next?" sections, which suggest additional skills to try and potential related careers. Safety tips, "Super Facts," and handy hints are highlighted in sidebars.
