Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. These additions to the True Books--Sports series offer a comprehensive look at the summer Olympics games. Olympics provides an overview of the games, both ancient and modern, with the accent on the latter. The book not only discusses specific events but also gives insight into the Olympic spirit and Olympic ideals, including cross-cultural friendships. Some of the games' heroes, such as Mark Spitz and Nadia Comaneci, are also introduced. Swimming begins with the story of Amy Van Dyken, an unlikely Olympic winner, and then goes back through the history of swimming competitions, explains the different strokes and dives, and introduces water-sport medalists. Large print and informative texts are the hallmarks of the series. The color photographs are plentiful but in some cases small. --Ilene Cooper
