Every four years, during the summer, the whole world comes together at the Olympic Games to celebrate and support the best athletes from each country. The Games are a worldwide event, but their roots can be found in the heart of the Mediterranean: Greece. The Great Book of Olympic Games starts with the Games’ origins in ancient Greece, and goes on to discuss the evolution of the Games into the modern Games we know today, including the introduction of the Winter Games and the Paralympics.  Filled with fun facts, children will discover every statistic, sport, and champion of the games.
