Who do you think would win a gold medal in basketball - a team of lions, giraffes or chimpanzees? Who would swim the fastest - a tiger, a beaver or a crocodile? Who do you think could lift the heaviest weight - an elephant, gorilla or grizzly bear? You decide who wins the bronze, silver and gold medals.
Readers are given simple, informative descriptions for ten sporting events. The unique skills each creature would bring to these events are described in a fun yet factual way. Children are encouraged to apply critical thinking to predict who would win the gold, silver, and bronze medal in each event.
