2016 Rio Olympics

2016 Rio Olympics

It’s been such a thrill to watch athletes from around the world compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. To mark this special occasion I found two books about young women who made history at previous Olympic events, one is an American gymnast, the other from Romania. Whatever country you root for, these games inspire!

Both books are about two young highly talented Gold Medal winning Olympic gymnasts.

Gabby Douglas  (Amazing Athletes) by  Jon M. Fishman Published by Learner Publications (2012) Age Range: 6-9 years.

Nadia: The Girl Who Couldn’t Sot Still by Karlin Gray (Author), Christine Davenier (Illustrator), Published by  HMH Books for Young Readers (2016) Age Range: 6-9 years.



And in case inquiring minds wanted to know, the King Cake Baby and I are big fans of Team USA!
