About My Encyclopedia of Very Important Sports

A complete and comprehensive children's book about sports that combines facts and figures with the inspiring stories of sporting legends and icons.

This exciting book for children is packed with fun facts about a range of popular sports such as football, karate, badminton, and skiing, as well as ones you might never have heard of like biathlon or cheese rolling. Whether you're a fan of team sports, winter sports, water sports, extreme sports, and even board games such as chess and go, this book has it all. My Encyclopedia of Very Important Sports also celebrates the unique talents, lives, and careers of sporting heroes such as Usain Bolt, Serena Williams, Yuna Kim, Lin Dan, and Donald Bradman, and chronicles the most celebrated stories in sporting history, such as breaking the four-minute mile, Nadia Comaneci's perfect 10, and Jesse Owens at the 1936 Olympics.

Featuring everything from obscure rules and strange equipment, to moments of triumph and sporting events like the World Cup, Super Bowl, Olympics, Paralympics, and more--this is the perfect book for budding superstars everywhere.
