From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 4-From "A is for Arena./The game is played in here,/a building where the fans all gather/to clap and boo and cheer" to "-Zamboni for Z-/a machine that cleans the ice,/ensuring for tomorrow's game/a surface smooth and nice," this volume introduces various aspects of the sport and some highlights from its history. For example, "U is for Team USA-/Who, to everyone's surprise,/at Lake Placid won Olympic Gold/before a nation filled with pride." The use of Canadian spelling, according to the author, is a tribute to the origins of the game. Bold acrylic paintings depict professional players, as well as youngsters at play. Buy where demand warrants.

We are wondering how the author got his ideas. Is he a hockey fan? We are also curious to find out what Mr. Napier's favourite book is. We want to find out if he has a favourite hockey team. Mrs. Mako hopes that it is the Montreal Canadians!!!!Ok or the Toronto Maple Leafs!!
We think that Matt's next book should be T is for Toronto!!

Coupled with Melanie Rose's detailed illustrations, this book is a sure hit for a child (or child at heart) of any age. Kudos to this fine young author!
I've purchased several copies for Christmas gifts and I can't wait until Matt Napier breaks into the children's world again with another beautiful and informative book.
And talk about his performance on Off The Record!
I'm going to agree with the rest of the world on this one: Zing.

I was quite disappointed when I flipped through this book. While it may be a great book to read to sons or nephews, it's not at all appropriate for a gender inclusive classroom. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Rebekah Mayer
Great for the 6 month old to 2 year old. The bright pictures captured my 6 month old grandson's attention and he paid full attention to the entire reading. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Jack
