This book is awesome! Our girl loves gymnastics and heard about Nadia, she also loves to watch Nadia on You Tube. So she was very excited to find this book at the school library. She brought it home and wanted me to read it too. Great way to teach little gymnasts about Nadia and about gymnastics. We learned that Nadia became the youngest Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics ever and the 1st to receive a score of perfect 10 in Olympic history. At our house we love Nadia and this book is super cute! I'm going to buy it so that we can have it.
