Olympics Books for Kids: learn the history and explore the sports of the Olympic Games

Spread the love

It’s not too soon to begin rounding up books about the Olympics for your kids. Learn all about the history of the Olympic games and what the Olympics are like today from this Gold Medal Book List!

I have loved watching the Olympics ever since I was a little girl. I love how once every four years I become highly (and potentially irrationally) invested in water polo, beach volleyball, and other slightly-random athletic events.

I especially love the stories behind the competitors. It is always meaningful to see men and women from all over the world come together and share in this tradition together.

Is it any wonder, then, that I’m already looking forward to the Olympic games this summer?

Be sure to bookmark this page so you can get ahead of all the other homeschool moms putting Olympic Game books on hold at the library later this spring.

Not that it’s a race or anything. Ahem. (But I will say that only 1 person gets a gold medal…) 😉

Amy Sloan and her husband, John, are second-generation homeschoolers by grace alone to 5 children ages 4, 7, 9, 12, and 14. Their educational philosophy is one of humility and doxology, and follows primarily a classical approach. Amy loves coffee, and starts getting nervous if the stack of to-be-read library books beside her bed is less than 2 feet tall. Get her started on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Homer, or Hamilton the Musical and it might be hard to get her to stop. Mostly, though, she gets really excited about the Gospel.
