Review: My First Book of Hockey

November 11, 2016


If you know a young reader who’s a sports enthusiast, you must pick up MY FIRST BOOK OF HOCKEY, a title from Sports Illustrated Kids and Time Inc, Books.  Youth hockey is becoming more popular, even here in the south – these days over half a million kids play organized hockey in the US.  Vance has been a fan of hockey for as long as I can remember so I wish this book had been out when he was young – as much for me as for him.

MY FIRST BOOK OF HOCKEY teaches the basics of ice hockey, using photographs from real NHL players.  The photos are large, vibrant and visually appealing.  A small cartoon hockey player adds some humor that kids will love to most pages.  This book is aimed at the 3 to 8 year old set – those in the younger range will enjoy sharing the book with an adult while the older kids can easily read it themselves.  I love that the book includes basic rules and terms of hockey as well as some of the hand signals the refs use.  If you know any sports loving early readers, be sure to check this book out!

    Interesting, I haven’t seen many books like this.

    I’ve been following hockey for a long time, since San Jose has had a team since 1991. But I’m not sure that even I wouldn’t get something out of this book!

    This would be my first book about hockey, too. I don’t know much about the sport. Have a great weekend, Kathy!

    I hadn’t thought that they would have books like this. Interesting. I thought kids just learned about the sports by doing them!

    Sounds like a cute read. I love watching my local hockey team play! I know my cousin plays ice hockey and he lives in Texas, so it’s getting big.

    I saw this book last week on another blog. Canadian kids would love this one!

    My sister and brother-in-law are big hockey fans and are expecting their first baby next year. When I saw you posted this win not long ago, I KNEW this had to be one of the books I give them. I KNOW they’ll get a kick out of it!
