Revving up the mood for the 2012 Games in London, India at the olympic game answers more than just these questions. Anecdotes, timelines, milestones and trailblazers follow the growth of the biggest and most spectacular sporting event in the world, from its origins in Greece to modern times. The floodlights then turn on India’s participation in the Games, making this the first such book for children. Stories about little known, differently abled and well known Indian sports people evoke the values that have come to shape and define the Games – the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect and the Paralympic values of courage, determination, equality and inspiration.

Pitching sport as an essential part of every child’s life, this well researched and attractively designed book has activities that flag children off to solve puzzles, answer questions, write and create – fun workouts for the mind that also engage them more closely with sport, sporting issues and the sporting spirit, on and off the field.
