    Too much Michael Phelps, not enough T-Rex.

    This book is full of hubrisybe well-earned, but it's just a big, long brag-fest by Michael Phelps. However, to give Michael Phelps his due, he is one fine-tuned athlete and this really fun picture book celebrates the fact. It's a first-person "narrative" with cute, cartoonish illustrations where Phelps describes the kind of training he did to win his 8 Olympic gold medals. He swam 60,000 every week = 12,480 miles in 6 years - that's the same as 183,040 trips around the bases or swimming the Grea [...]

    My three-year-old tends to pick library books at random, and this was in the most recent batch. Ugh. It is pretty much a wow-look-at-me presentation of Phelps training regimen. If your kid is an aspiring Olympian (or a Phelps fan?), maybe there is value here. Otherwise? Meh. Needs more dinosaurs.

    This was a great book to read with kids during the Olympics. It gave my kids a good idea of how Olympic athletes train and for how long. They also knew who Michael Phelps was when we it came time for him to swim. They were able to cheer him on and keep track of his medals.

    What Michael Phelps did to train for the Olympics but put into comparisons so you can actually visualize it. Quite interesting and I can see the appeal to boys especially. I have yet to figure out what the T. Rex has to do with anything though. Did I miss something?

    Different than I expected. But definitely interesting! It shows how much hard work it takes to succeed. Always glad to teach my kids that principle!

    You can bet I'll be using this book in math! Also, mega mega points to Ward Jenkins for featuring a T. Rex trying to lift weights with his/her little wimpy arms on the cover. :)

    A surprisingly decent book with fun ways to look at numbers. The illustrations are nice as well.

    This is an adorable biography for young children. They wil like the dinosaur and the message of hard work pays off is simple enough it won't be lost on them.

    For two weeks every four years, athletes from around the world come together to compete in the Olympics. Every four years, new stars emerge from the competition. One star will be remembered for generations because during the XXX Olympiad in London he accomplished what no other human has done before: win nineteen Olympic Gold Medals. How to train with a T.Rex and win eight Gold Medals by Micheal Phelps and Ward Jenkins is a autobiography by the unquestionable star of the London Games. This is his [...]

    Michael Phelps goes through the training he had to do in order to win eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. This nonfiction picture book has the goal of getting its readers interested in math as Michael Phelps compares how many meters he swam during a given time to the distance between Baltimore and the North Pole, or the Great Wall of China. I think children who are fans of Michael Phelps will appreciate this book. The pictures are fun and I think it successfully encourages the rea [...]

    Read by: MaryAuthor: Michael Phelps with Alan Abrahamson Illustrator: Ward JenkinsGenre: AutobiographyInterest Level: K-3Grade Level Equivalent: 3This book is a kid friendly book which has easy to read text and entertaining pictures that will bring the reader in. It tells of all the accomplishments of Michael Phelps in the Beijing Olympics. It describes the handwork and effort he had to maintain in order to succeed.

    My bias against Michael Phelps probably isn't helping my lack of enthusiasm for this book. It's cute and has a good message: hard work will take you far. And I get that his accomplishments were all about athletics. But I would have liked this book much better if there had been some mention of keeping up with schoolwork in the middle of all this Olympic training.

    There was no reading level information available, but the book is recommended for ages 4-8. Michael Phelps talks about winning eight gold medals in Beijing. He discusses his workout routine and eating habits. The comparisons he uses in the book are kid-friendly and the illustrations help describe the text very well. This book is great for grades K-3.

    Maybe it was appropriate that we read this on a " that will live in infamy" While an attempt at teaching math w/in the story of Michael Phelps quest for gold, it comes off as a rush to press to cash in on fame. What makes the least amount of sense is the discussion of all of this in terms of his training from 1998 - 2003--what about the five years leading up to the Olympics in Beijing.

    A look at the statistics of Michael Phelps training and Olympic exploits leading up to and during the 2008 Olympics. It tries really hard to be both entertaining and inspiring, but I think that it falls short.

    Michael Phelps won eight gold metals in the summer of 2008 in Beijing. How did he do it? He trained for six years straight. Every week in practice he swam 60,000 meters. Every day he took a three-hour nap. He ate as much as 10,000 calories every day.

    Kind of braggy, and I can't help thinking about Mr. Phelps' 3 hour a day naps and his food binges in relation to his pot smoking but this book is cute and explains some of the work involved in getting to the olympics. Only one page actually has a t-rex on it tho

    Big hit in Olympics storytime, but probably not very useful the other 3 and a half years around the Summer Olympics. The numbers are a really fun visual way for the kids to understand what training looks like.

    Was looking for a book to read on Read Aloud day and came across this book and I gotta admit I wasn't expecting much of it but it's hilarious and I'm sure the kids will love it! Not so sure how good it's for read aloud day but it's pretty cool.

    I used this picture book as a read aloud for third, fourth and fifth graders to inspire them and inform them how hard Michael Phelps had to work for 6 years to get to the Beijing 2008 Olympics and win 8 gold medals. Then his work becomes a great reference to what hard work really looks like.

    Quite a bit of math. I think some of the pictures are cool for comparison, but a smaller child, unless they were a HUGE Micahel Phelps fan, would get bogged down in all the numbers.

    if i ate 10,000 calories a day and napped 3 hours a day, could i be like michael phelps? cute story and great pics!

    Wow. This is nothing more than self-promotion. No story. No real substance. Still, fans of Phelps (especially the younger ones) might enjoy this.

    Very cute.

    What a fun book!

    Puts Michael Phelps training in a way that young children can understand. It is really amazing to adults, too, to realize just how much it took to prepare and participate in the summer Olympics.


    Great pictures, good book for numbers and comparing them to things that a child would recognize
