The Editors of Sports Illustrated for Kids created a fun introduction to hockey for young fans in MY FIRST BOOK OF HOCKEY: A ROOKIE BOOK. This book does a great job explaining hockey to a child. It contains everything from positions to the more common penalties. Heck I know a few travel hockey parents that could use this book.
I love that the images are of current NHL hockey players. The little bubble comments drawn over the players are amusing.
My son is thirteen, so he is a little old for this book. He reads adult hockey biographies. However, all of his little cousins decided they want to follow in his footsteps and play hockey. We will be getting them copies of this book as a gift from my son. He thought the book was perfect for those learning the sport. I could see this being a fantastic bed time book. MY FIRST BOOK OF HOCKEY: A ROOKIE BOOK is nicely designed with great photos; it has pertinent hockey information, and it has funny annotations that will make kids smile.
