Reading Olympics Heather Hopson August 8, 2012 Uncategorized (Photo Courtesy: Brad Herzog) Dear Diary, I wasn’t much of an athlete as a child, but I was an Olympic reader. Everywhere I went, I made sure I had a book to read in the car. My parents made sure I exercised not only my body but my brain as well. To get kids excited to check out the summer games, encourage them to check out an Olympics themed story. Or, have them pen their own adventures and share their stories to your family on commercial breaks. Here’s a list of popular picks for kids: Babar’s Celesteville Games by Laurent de Brunhoff Dream Big: Michael Jordan and the Pursuit of Olympic Gold (Paula Wiseman Books) by Deloris Jordan and Barry Root G is for Gold Medal: An Olympics Alphabet (Sleeping Bear Press Sports & Hobbies) by Brad Herzog and Doug Bowles Gemma the Gymnastics Fairy (Rainbow Magic: Sports Fairies #7) by Daisy Meadows How to Train with a T.
