This book is written for children just beginning to ski, and of course their parents, anxious to support their child's enthusiasm. The little snowman and his friend, the tiger Skitty, offer comprehensible and humorous guidance for children's first attempts on skis, to successfully skiing downhill. A number of exercises safely lead to success one step at a time. In addition the children learn interesting facts about winter sports, snow, equipment, a healthy lifestyle, and safety precautions. The many opportunities for colouring in, checking off, and filling out motivate and inspire children to become actively involved.
