I've been having the hardest time finding books about gymnastics. All those (non-memoirs) in print are overwhelmingly aimed at children. This, at least, seems to be aimed at older children, rather than 5-year-olds.

A World-Class Gymnast is, as the title suggests, concerned with elite gymnastics. It covers both the basics (e.g. how gymnastics originated) and the not-so-basics (e.g. competitive scoring), with short, lucid explanations of most of the sport's facets. There are lots of pictures, too.
