'My First Book of Hockey: A Rookie Book: Mostly Everything Explained About the Game' by Editors of Sports Illustrated for Kids is a fun introduction to the sport of hockey.
The book is told with photos of NHL players and cartoons. The players think and say funny things as the rules are explained. Hockey is a fast moving game, and this book moves along pretty fast also. Much of the game is condensed and explained really well. The different positions of the players, the rink, and even the Zamboni gets some mention. The basic play and more well known penalties are explained as well as the penalty box and what a power play is.
It's done really well. The book unfolds over the course of a game with a countdown clock on the pages for each period, and even including the breaks between periods. This is a great read aloud book for a little hockey fan. Some of the cartoony stuff was a bit silly, but it works in the context of the book. Its fun to see real players in a kids book.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Time Inc. Books, Sports Illustrated Kids, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
