An overall great book that will teaches its readers the information they need in a new exc ...more

Easy to read and a nice guide to the Olympics.
I could not read it front to back. Interesting pictures and interesting info. It does have an index.
Personally, I think this book doesn't have enough pictures to qualify as a good book for children.
