Animal Olympics: A Beautiful Vintage Children's Book

I really love the Olympics. And since I'm homeschooling this year, we're doing our long-term project on the Olympics right now. We're learning a LOT, and I have the venn diagrams to prove it.

Obviously, this means I've been obsessing over all things Olympics-related. Even going so far as to search Etsy for the most spectacularly tacky vintage Olympic goods I can find.

Except then I found this really beautifully illustrated children's book from Estonia about the animal olympics, published in 1968.

I happen to love how each animal is matched up with a certain sport (those giraffes are playing basketball, of course). View the Etsy listing for the book.

Know of any more beautiful Olympic books? Tell me!
