Gr 4¿6¿Readers drawn to these books because of the intriguing topics may be frustrated by the shallow treatments. With double-page photos and about a paragraph of text per page, Aqua Sports briefly introduces subjects such as water-powered jetpacks, human-powered water rollers, and dragon boat racing. Photos in Swimming in the Wild depict swimmers and divers enjoying close encounters with dolphins, whales, rays, and even sharks, though the text notes that it may be safer to enjoy these animals from a distance. Diving addresses the sport's dangers; it covers cliff diving and platform diving into shallow pools and mentions Olympic champion Greg Louganis's injury at the 1988 Summer Olympics.
