Olympic Books for Kids + FREE Study Unit Resources

During the last Olympic games, my sons and I read a ton of Olympics books for kids.

My boys really fell in love with the story of Wilma Rudolph in Wilma Unlimited.

We also listened to this kids’ version Boys in the Boat while we were on a car trip this summer – what an amazing story!
