My First Book of Hockey : A Rookie Book - a bookwrap

Coming from Canada I grew up with hockey in my blood.  I used to watch Hockey Night In Canada every Saturday night with my dad and I even played women's hockey in my hometown.  It is a sport Canadians are good at and so proud of.  Today's book is for the beginner and I am sure you will be delighted with it.

A Rookie Book
Mostly Everything Explained About the Game

Ages 4-7

About the book...

Sports Illustrated Kids has done a fantastic job with this book.  It is a super fun introduction to hockey for those young up-and-coming fans and those wanna-be hockey superstars.  The book covers almost all aspects of playing and understanding the game:  positioning the players, equipment needed, location where it's played, rules of the game,  half-time zamboni intervention, and practising good sportsmanship during and after the game,  just to name a few.  

The authors brilliantly use cut out photos of current NHL hockey players and an adorable little cartoon character that is all eyes and ears as he is trying very hard to learn all about the sport from the pros. The humorous speech bubbles are witty and deliver a smile when assessing the basic facts and learning all about them. 

The illustrations are bold, vibrant and full of action, just what kids love.  I know your child will delight in this book and learn about the sport while giggling all along the way.  If the book's goal was to scored....BIG TIME!  Expect lots of overtime too as your child asks it to be read one more time.  Failing to adhere to that request might send you right to the penalty box.  Enjoy the book, I know you will love it!  Highly recommended by Storywraps.
