The lovely @timeincbooks kindly gave me the opportunity to #review this #icehockey book for beginners, I saw it over on @NetGalley and as I’ve been a fan of the sport for well over 25 years, I just had to request it.
Although its obviously for children, this would be an ideal book for anyone just getting into watching the game too. It is well illustrated and explains things in easy to understand terms which even some of my stalwart hockey friends may learn a thing or two of which they didn’t know!
I think every ice arena should have copies of this book, especially over here in England. It would maybe help to get more people interested in the sport instead of it been classed as a minority sport.
I rate this book 5/5
Next up in the fan-favorite Rookie Book series, Sports Illustrated Kids explains the coolest game in the world to its youngest fans.
The puck drops, skates flash, and sticks fly-a hockey game is underway! With a fun mix of Sports Illustrated action photography, simple text, a full glossary of terms, and cool graphics, My First Book of Hockey introduces readers to the basics. Kids (and maybe a few adults, too!) will learn how power plays work, how the three-period game flows, what a hat trick is, what’s up with the referee’s crease, and more.
An illustrated “rookie” character appears on every page, guiding the reader moment by moment, and helping to makeMy First Book of Hockey an ideal shared reading experience between parents and their young rookies before, during, and after the game.
