Olympians Start Out as Kid Athletes. Let’s Take a Look!

Olympians start out as kid athletes.
Let’s take a look!

Everything Sports

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!

NatGeoKids Real or Fake? by Emily Krieger

NatGeoKids Real or Fake?

Real or Fake

Far-out fibs, fishy facts, and phony photos to test for the truth

 

Here’s a fun book from National Geographic KiDS that kid will LOVE. Like all NGK books, Real or Fake contains great color photos with fun facts and wild interesting information that you might not learn about otherwise.  Here’s an example: An octopus that lives in trees in the US Pacific Northwest. Real or Fake?  The answer? Fake! Why? Because just like Bigfoot, it’s a made up thing. How about Chester the chimp who can play a guitar specially designed for him. The answer? Fake! As funny as it sounds, chimps can do many things but they sadly, cannot learn to play and sing because they don’t have the fine motor skills that humans have. But how funny would that be?

Is there really a place called Humpty Doo, Australia? Yes. What about Batman, Turkey? Yes. Cheeseburger, Wisconsin? Fake. What about Firenadoes? Is that a thing?

You’ll hafta Google it to find out.  In the meantime, grab several copies of this book because when you bring this book home everyone’s going to want to read it!

Did you know you can get a job as a pet food taster?

Yep.
