Squirt brought this home from the school library. It was a bit awkward to read, since it has step-by-step instructions for Ollies and Nollies and What Have You, but Squirt was hanging on every word, probably imagining himself doing every move. (I wonder what he dreamt those nights after I read this book to him.) I'm pretty sure we'll be re-reading this.

Skateboarding incorporated many elements of informational texts. It has diagr

Awesome book for students who are interested in the topic. I can see this book being one the student would want to take home and use to try out. Has a lot of diagrams and new skateboarding tricks.
