Are you watching the Olympics? As I watch the competitions, I am learning about China and its people, about athletes and all the hard work that they do, and about the long history of the Olympics. If you are interested in these things too, here are some titles for you:
The Emperor's Silent Army: Terracotta Warriors of Ancient China by Jane O'Conner
Wilma Unlimited: How Wilma Rudolph Became the World's Fastest Woman by Kathleen Krull
Hour of the Olympics and Ancient Greece and The Olympics: A Nonfiction Companion to Hour of the Olympics by Mary Pope Osborne
Some YA classics!
