This is a must for any hockey fan with children. Not only is it a traditional ABC's book, it also teaches about the history of hockey and helps people of all ages get a better appreciation for the game.

This book hit me hard. It is an absolute joy to read. I originally bought it as an afterthought to add to a display of Canadian themed books for my students to read in their spare time, but once I actually picked it up and read it, I realized its full potential. This is a great book to add to all collections regardless of age or gender. While hockey buffs will immediately be drawn to this book, others will fall in love with it, too. Also, it would make a great gift for so many people I know. An awesome find!

I was absolutely first-line, rookie-of-the-year impressed by "Z is for Zamboni." I don't think there could have been much more crease-crashing, glove-wearing, hockey-spelling hockey in this book. Everyone I've shown it to has been impressed both by the amount of hockey in the book, and also by the fact that all 26 some-odd letters have a rhyme specifically written for them, relating to the "old stick and puck." I would recommend this book to anyone interested in hockey, or the alphabet.

In his incredible debut to the world of children's books, Matt Napier manages to bring to life one of the world's greatest sports with both vivacity and ingenuity. His choices for each letter of the alphabet are carefully thought out and well represented, giving a clear yet diverse insight into Canada's national pastime.
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!

Matt Napier must be some sort of genius because I've never seen a more beautifully written children's book since "The Giving Tree." Not to mention, the illustrations which are absolutely fabulous. Melanie Rose is truly a great artist. Get this book hot off the press because it's going fast!
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.

Wow. That's all that comes to mind after reading this humdinger. My new wife Jan and I could not get enough of this book. We read it to our daughter Carly about once a week. She can't get enough! I'm really excited to see what this talented, stable, potential-filled kid will do next.
And talk about his performance on Off The Record!
I'm going to agree with the rest of the world on this one: Zing.

My 4 year old "hockey-nut" son absolutely adores this book. It makes bedtime easier because he knows we get to read this book. As a first grade teacher, I applaude the way that the authors have also made this a "teaching" book. My son is now recognizing the alphabet as we read the book. I plan on buying several more and giving it as a gift! A++++++

This is a great simple A-Z board book which is a must have for tiny hockey fans. The illustrations are great, and as others have said, the history and information is gives are basic and easy to read. A great gift and a great addition to a little one's library.

Here's a sweet idea and a wonderful book for teachers to use in their classrooms. I recommend it to my teachers (who are Canadian teachers working in London, England) and it's a big hit. It helps kids understand our love of hockey!
