July 23, 2012

The Olympics start this Friday! Are you looking forward to watching the best athletes compete for the gold? We are! Diego is super excited to watch the swimming competitions and he has been reading Olympig! by Victoria Jamieson.

This little piggy has big dreams of Olympic glory…

…but he quickly finds out that it isn’t as easy as it seems.

Beautiful art work and a great story of motivation and determination, this book is great for all kids who play sports and those looking forward to watching the Olympics this summer.

Will you be watching the Games? What are your favorite events?

Your friend,

    I never play sports when I was in school I was pretty bad, but if there would of been a pool in my town I know I would of love to be in a swim team or something, I did used to love to watch the olympics, but my favorite was swimming, icekating and runing. I will be watching some of it this year, and since Melina is in a swim team I will make sure she sees some of it.

    My favorites to watch are figure ice skating and gymnastics. This book looks cute. I will look for it at my library.
