The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 7 + poetry. All the excitement of the big games – and smaller ones too – is captured in this anthology of poems devoted to different aspects of sport and sporting events. There’s boasting and imagination in I am the Fastest, an understanding of letting someone else win in Winning and also words of cheer for those who don’t want to take part. A perfect companion as excitement for the 2012 Olympics builds.


Olympic Poems - 100% Unofficial! by Brian Moses, Roger Stevens

The Real Battle On the school field Or in the Olympic Stadium Your competitors smile Whilst plotting to beat you But the real battle Is in your head.

A brilliant, funny, inspiring collection of poems about sport and sporting events of every kind from PE lessons to sports day to the final of the men's 100m race.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
