Revving up the mood for the 2012 Games in London, this is the first book for young children on India's participation in the Olympic Games. Anecdotes, timelines, milestones and trailblazers follow the growth of the biggest and most spectacular sporting event in the world, from its origins in Greece to modern times. Stories about little known, differently abled and well known Indian sportspeople evoke the values that have come to shape and define the Games, such as excellence, friendship, respect... Pitching sport as an essential part of every child's life, this well researched and attractively designed book has activities that flag children off to solve puzzles, answer questions, write and create – fun workouts for the mind that also engage them more closely with sport, sporting issues and the sporting spirit, on and off the field.

A worthy buy

There are several features that make these books a worthy buy. For one, a plethora of facts have been presented in a manner that is neither overwhelming nor boring. Second, the books touch upon ethical issues such as the ban on performance enhancing drugs and the spirit of sportsmanship, inviting young minds to ponder on them. Third, the suggested reading material, movies and Web sites encourage readers to pick up the thread of learning on their own. The Hindu Business Line
