Circus Skills

by Stephanie Turnbull

Part of a Series: Super Skills.

Want to join the circus? In this engaging volume, clear, step-by-step instructions teach the necessary skills for juggling, plate spinning, tumbling, hula hooping, balancing acts, and clowning. Both beginner-friendly and more advanced techniques are covered. Numerous photographs, diagrams, and “handy hints” aid comprehension, while safety warnings throughout remind the reader not to attempt anything dangerous. A “What Next?” section at the end suggests additional ways for children to improve their skills and highlights the joys and challenges of circus careers. Back matter includes a glossary, a list of useful Web sites, and an index.
