Kids Books for the Olympics

The Olympics are coming and what better way to get you and your kids ready than to check out a few books at the library.  Here are three books that my daughter and I truly enjoy. Go Team U.S.A.! 


Dream Big: Michael Jordan and the Pursuit of Olympic Gold by Deloris Jordan Who doesn't love Michael Jordan . . . or at least are amazed by his NBA Basketball career. His NBA career was so amazing that it shadows the fact that Michael Jordan was also an Olympian. This is a great book for children to never give up on your passions and dreams.

How to Train with a T. Rex and Win 8 Gold Medals by Michael Phelps This is such a fun book...I love how Michael tells the story of how he trains. His comparisons to help kids understand is hilarious. And, as an adult, I even learned a few things and was amazed by his athletic ability.

G is for Gold Medal: An Olympics Alphabet by Brad Herzog This is a fantastic book to help kids see what the Olympics is all about. It is a non-fiction book that gives facts by using the alphabet. What I love about this book is the small readable facts that don't overwhelm young kids and perfect for younger readers to manage.
