Synopsis

The Science Behind Swimming, Diving and Other Water Sports by Amanda Lanser

Behind the flips, splashes and speed of Olympic water sports, science is at work. Gravity and centrifugal force are in play as a diver spins and flips before splashing into the water. Olympic swimmers shave their bodies to reduce drag as they zip through the water. Find out how science is involved in all your favourite water events and how athletes take science into account in their quest for the gold medal.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
