Calling all hockey players

Hello hockey fans! I don’t know about you but if you have a little one playing this great sport it truly becomes a way if life! (At least November to March) My youngest Keegan, age 7, decided to move up from the house team/learn to skate program and joined a travelling team this season.


Isn’t he cute?

Along with his teammates, he is loving getting out on the ice and playing around.
Recently theĀ coach has started to introduce and implement the rules of the game. My husband and I, not being hockey players ourselves, quickly looked to the Internet to educate ourselves so we could support this important aspect of the game. Of course, those who know me know (in addition to googling) I went to scope out the library. Here are some great picture books I found. (Click the title for amazon links)

The Illustrated Roles of Ice Hockey

Z if for Zamboni

Ice Hockey and Curling


These three have been really good not only for the great pictures and illustrations but they really give a deeper knowledge of the many aspects to the sport of Hockey. So for any beginner or young hockey player these would be a must.I hope everyone is enjoying winter and as always…

Happy Reading!

  1. I love that you can see the pictures while reading about the rules. Using the A B Cs to formularies yourself with the hockey language is great.
