Olympians start out as kid athletes.
Let’s take a look!
If you’re like me and glued to the Olympics then here’s something to supplement your Olympic knowledge. Nat Geo Kids’ Everything Sports book contains all kinds of great photos and fun facts that will help you decide which sport you might want to participate in.
Become an expert on sports, just in time for the 2016 Olympics! From archery to zip lining this book covers EVERYTHING about the world’s favorite team and individual sports. With stunning visuals and energetic, impactful design, readers won’t stop until they’ve learned everything there is to know about the history, rules and regs, training, and practice of dozens of athletic pursuits. Includes popular sports such as baseball, basketball, football, soccer, tennis, and quirkier sports such as fencing, curling, and table tennis.
I personally love the fencing photo but there’s too much great stuff inside to choose one favorite. There’s even a sport you’ve never heard of. But I’m not telling. (wink)
Speaking of quirky sports, let’s take a look at Nat Geo Kids Weird but True! Sports
Did you know that in the UK there is a custard pie throwing contest? Have you ever seen anyone ski while holding on to a horse? Yeah, me neither but I might pay to see that one. No matter how you like your sports, there’s prolly a weird fact to go along with it.
Grab these two books and laugh and learn and amaze your friends and your parents during this Olympic season. But watch out for the half pipe competition in Chile that’s run on the side of a volcano. Ouchy.
Pick your sport today and maybe we’ll see you one day in the Olympics!
