SOCCER HOUR by Carol Nevius
Released: Feb. 1, 2011

"Although there are plenty of glimmerings as to soccer's mechanics—meeting the punt, trapping he ball, fake out moves and rainbow kicks—and the emphasis on practice making perfect is brightly handled, this is not an instruction book; it is a participatory experience, full of crackling atmosphere. (Picture book. 4-8)"
As per usual (Karate Hour, 2004, etc.), Thomson's artwork grabs the eye first and never lets it go. Read full book review >
Released: Sept. 1, 2006

"The story is engrossing on many levels to young builders, and the inspiring perspectives and sheer beauty of the artwork will captivate children and adults alike. (Picture book. 3-6)"

KARATE HOUR by Carol Nevius
Released: Sept. 1, 2004

"Despite the elaborate illustrations, this offers a more superficial view of karate's inner workings than Anne Rockwell's Chip and the Karate Kick (p. 447), but nonetheless makes an adequate first introduction for prospective karate-kas. (Picture book/nonfiction. 7-9)"
Viewers will definitely feel like participants in this visit to a children's karate class. Read full book review >
