GOOD POINTS: If your child needs to know anything about sport, then this is a great little resource, packed full of fascinating facts and educational material.

The book has a good quality feel, and is a great length, separated into numerous sections covering every angle of sport such as the beginnings of sport, the origins of the Olympics and the history of many modern day sports including rugby, football and tennis, as well as winter and water sporting activities. In addition, the book addresses other important (and often understated) aspects of sport including variations of different sports around the world, disabled athletes, health benefits of sport, careers in sport, politics surrounding sport, and the not-so-nice side of sport, hooliganism.

The book tackles each section in a simple, uncomplicated and fun way that children will understand and be interested to learn more about. A contents page allows them to get straight to the section they want to read about, and at the back of the book is a glossary of sporting terms, together with a sports quiz to test your child's understanding of the subject (with answers provided). Furthemore, the book is crammed with wonderful full colour cartoon-style illustrations throughout (including the cover) to compliment the written content.

In our opinion, this is a really great educational resource for children (and parents) whether at home or in the school classroom, and the book successfully transforms a huge subject area into an enjoyable bite-sized, humourous and invaluable source of information.

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!

PRICE: £7.99 (Release date: August 2011)
