Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Defying Gravity is about the incredible world of extreme sports, from the story of the longest kitesurfing journey and how to ride the world's whitewater rapids, to how it is possible to slide down a handrail on inline skates.
From Surfing to the Secret Life of Rats , the Extreme series will excite and inspire 8 to 11 year olds. High-interest topics grab the reader and introduce key science concepts in an accessible and innovative way. The action-packed pages are designed to motivate struggling and reluctant readers, and a reading age of 7 makes the content super-accessible. Extreme titles are ideal for supporting creative classroom teaching and for spicing up topic libraries.
