Children’s sports books

Get competitive and learn about the power of teamwork with sports books for children. Head to sports day with Peppa Pig and Kes Gray’s Daisy and the Trouble with Sports Day, or go on a footballing adventure with Priscilla Mante’s Jaz Santos vs the World. Whether they’re reading children’s books about dance, learning to ride with The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop by Clare Balding or being inspired by Gareth Southgate’s Anything is Possible, children will learn that it’s most definitely the taking part that counts.
