This book would be enjoyed by any young fan of gymnastics. It's well organized and incredibly informative. It was longer than I expected and could be a great resource for a gymnastic teacher or coach to use with their gymnasts. 

An early copy of this book was made available to me by the publisher through netgalley. This is my honest review.

Do you know a girl aged seven to nine who is fascinated by gymnastics?  If you do, this book will be perfect for them. Beautifully illustrated with many photos and diagrams, this title is comprehensive.  There are sections on different types of gymnastics, the various pieces of equipment, the role of teamwork, star gymnasts, a quiz and more.  For those who dream of, or just watch, the Olympics, this one is for you.


Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.

This is a great book for my nine year-old daughter, who is obsessed with gymnastics. This book is filled with illustrations and photos of all things gymnastics. My daughter particularly loved some of the step-by-step instructions on how to do some of her favorite moves. Would definitely recommend for any kid who loves gymnastics!

My Book of Gymnastics is a great introduction to the sport for young readers. It has great pictures and discusses many topics within the sport. It is great that it contains information on more than just artistic gymnastics, which is what most people automatically associate the word "gymnastics" with. This book also touches on rhythmic, acro, tumbling, aerobic gymnastics and even parkour. My only "complaint" was in regards to the page about the cartwheel backflip only because gymnasts do a round off back handspring, not a cartwheel backflip.

I am so biased on this review because I’ve been a huge gymnastics fan for over 30 years.  There are just not enough gymnastics books out there and we tend to get overlooked for more mainstream sports.  This book is amazing and I feel that anyone will be able to easily read this and get an appreciation for our sport.  Let’s keep those gymnastics books coming!

Oh what fun! This book would be an amazing gift for any young gymnast. It's a quick overview of the sport, and includes information on each of the events in artistic gymnastics, how to drawings of different gymnastics moves, tidbits on star gymnasts, as well as brief overviews of rhythmic gymnastics, trampoline, acrobatic gymnastics, parkour, and aerobic gymnastics. It even has a quiz at the end! I enjoyed learning about a sport I love to watch, and looking at the gymnasts featured in the book.
