Know the score with this ultimate guide to the world of sport.
Children's Book of Sport is your ultimate guide to the diverse world of sport. From the best known to the most obscure, this guide showcases team sports, target sports, as well as track and field.
Dynamic photographs bring sports to life, while fact boxes highlight key information from rules and regulations, to tactics and techniques. There are even star profiles and facts and stats on sports you never knew existed.
A special section on the Olympic and Paralympic Games, from the early Greek games right up to the present day, makes Children's Book of Sport your must-have guide in the run up to the 2012 London Olympics.
Review by: M Pitman, 25 July 2011
'From an adults perspective (generally the ones that are buying), the front cover doesn''t look particularly inviting. However, once into the book the facts and stats come flying thick and fast. My son particularly enjoyed the great photos in the book as well as the ''Aim of the game'' and ''Jargon Buster'' sections. As a family we also enjoyed reading about a number of sports that were new to ourselves (ever heard of Pickleball?). Overall, a good read that has had my son and myself picking it back up time and time again. '
