I should imagine that there are athletes across the world who are eagerly awaiting the start of the delayed Tokyo 2020 games. The Story of the Olympic Games has been written in collaboration with the International Olympic Committee and was published through Wellbeck Publishing last month.
Aimed at children aged eight years and over, The Story of the Olympic Games is the perfect accompaniment for the Tokyo Olympic games taking place in just a few weeks time. The 96-page hardback book gives an introduction to the origins of the games themselves as well as charting the different games that have been held since 1896 in Athens.
Children learn about the Olympic Games from around the globe from Athens in 1896 through to a preview of the delayed Tokyo 2020 Games.
The pages are full of bitesize Olympic facts as well as numerous photographs, action shots and memorabilia from the time.
Children can also learn about various stars of the different games and can see how sports clothing has changed over the years too!
My eleven-year-old son loves facts and figures and is well catered for with The Story of the Olympic Games and the different stats that are provided. It’s also interesting to learn how the games have evolved over the years as well as the medals.
London 2012 will always be special for us. My son may only have been small at the time, but he got to watch the torch relay as it came through our town. My niece also got to hold a torch in school. It was such a special time to live in the UK, and even though we only watched the actual events on tv, we still felt very much a part of the Olympic spirit that summer.
So with all the knowledge my son has taken from The Story of the Olympic Games, we are ready for this year’s event and looking forward to lots of Team GB success stories in the weeks ahead. Will you be watching too?
