Jack L. Robertsabout this book: EVERYONE LOVES THE OLYMPICS. And it's not too soon to start getting ready for the 2018 Winter Olympics (February 9 – 25, 2018) in PyeongChang, South Korea. "A Kid's Guide to the 2018 Winter Games" can help kids (and their parents, too) do just that.
The book provides a good introduction to each of the 15 sport "disciplines" that make up the 2018 Winter Games, as well as a lot of fun facts, statistics, and trivia about the winter games in general. (Did you know, for example, that the very first person to win a Gold Medal at Winter Olympic events was an American named Charles Jewtraw from New York? He won a gold medal in speed skating in 1924. It was the only gold medal won by an American that year.)
In addition, there is a special look at 15 Team USA "Athletes to Watch." (Most of the athletes who qualify to represent the United States in PyeongChang won't be announced, however until January 2018.)
For everybody who loves the Olympics (and don't we all), this is a fun book – colorful, easy-to-read, and informative with lots of beautiful photographs of the winter events.
