This first and only official children's book on the Olympics--created in association with the Olympic Museum in Lausanne--introduces kids to the glorious history of the Games.

The Olympic games are the world's greatest global sporting spectacle. This stunningly illustrated official history, written especially for children, charts the events from its origins in ancient Greece to its revival in 1896 and the 27 subsequent competitions. In addition to pages packed with exclusive photographs of the gripping action, legendary athletes, and artifacts that have defined each game, the book covers short-lived sports, groundbreaking firsts, fun fast facts, and much more. The Story of the Olympic Games will fascinate young fans and prepare them for the upcoming 2020 Games this summer in Tokyo.
Written with the full cooperation of the official Olympic Museum in Lausanne, a foundation of the International Olympic Committee.
