Pay no attention to the age recommendations. My First Book of Hockey is not just for little kids, or beginners. Brought to you by Sports Illustrated for Kids this is the perfect illustrated guide for anyone — young or old — who wants to learn more about this complex sport. The book is cleverly divided into three periods with a digital countdown clock on each 2-page spread. A cartoon rookie hangs out and makes comments as readers learn about equipment, rules, how to score, and how to land in the penalty box. Cut-out photos of current NHL players illustrate hockey’s non-stop action while their humorous comments pop up in word and thought bubbles. Whether teaching kids the fundamentals or brushing up on your favorite sport, you’ll score the hat trick of facts, fun and entertainment with My First Book of Hockey.
