Product Description

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.

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. The thick pages should make it durable. The letter W page was a great touch by the author.

This is a such a sweet book. Gives great detail of the game through the alphabet. I purchased this book because my son loves zamboni's but once we read the book together he got excited to see all the different aspects of the game.

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. There are no girls playing hockey; there are no women cheering from the stands. I counted exactly one female - a mother, sitting in the living room, sewing.

Good size and quality board book for rough and tough small hands. The book is a letter per page (ex: A is for Arena, B is for Bobby etc.) it isn't a story about Zamboni's which is what I was expecting but none the less my hockey obsessed toddler enjoys the book.

Yesterday we read the book called Z is for Zamboni in our grade four class. It was a good book. We enjoyed reading the book and learning more information about hockey. Our class thought the illustrations were just beautiful! We have also read M is for Maple when studying Canada in our room. We are hooked on Matt Napier's books now. We would love to read any other titles he might have written.
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!!

I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of this book only to be disappointed by the awkward language and lack of rhymes. The illustrations are interesting, but that's pretty much all this book has going for it.

Arrived one day early. The gift wrap was very nice. The pictures are great and have a nice polished look to them. The overall quality of the book is fantastic. However, the boardbook is a bit limited. This is the only downside, as there are no rhymes like in the description. The little guy loved it anyway, though.

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.
