Winter Olympics Themed Books


Winter Olympics are on their way and it's time to prepare our kids for all the amazing winter sports they will discover this year in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. They are February 7 through February 23 so now's the time to start grabbing books to prepare our children through literature.  

I took a little trip to the library to start finding out what options are available with books and discovered there are not that many in my local library.  I have quite a few of these on hold and can't wait for them to come in.  Plus I've selected a couple on Amazon to buy.  Here are some of the Olympic Books I can't wait to share with my kids.

I've linked each of this up to our Amazon Affiliate account just in case you decide you want to purchase one. We could receive a small portion of the sale in return to help support The Educators Spin On It.  All Opinions are written on my own.  


Non Fiction Books about the Winter Olympics 

I encourage you to read several non fiction books with your child during the Olympics it's creates an opportunity for many teachable moments for your child.  If you're lucky enough you may live in a place where you'd get to also go out and experience these Winter Olympic Sports. Which sport do you think will be your child's favorite to discover? 

     
 


Story Books about Winter Olympics Sports


There are so many Fiction books I can't wait for my child to experience.  I'm sure many will also be great story prompts for our writing as well.  Penguins, Camels, Rhinos, Dinosaurs you name it you can find books with Winter Sports and a variety of characters.

  1. My kids adore Callie Cat Ice Skater this year. I think it is simply marvelous because she doesn't "win" the competition, but finds the name for the pure, melting sweetness she feels when she skates.
