Interesting (and timely) information about the Olympic games. I learned a lot of things I didn't know and the photos included gave a glimpse of Games past. The format is a bit problematic. Huge blocks of text could have been broken up with photos and double-page spreads come in weird places. For a "photographic history", I thought it could have been laid out much better. However, it does include lots of great information and even though it was in big blocks of text, it held my attention and the chapters flowed nicely into one another. This will be a hit with kids interested in learning more about the Olympics. ( )
