Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—This is a short spin on the Manning family of football fame. Starting out on what appears to be a perfect Saturday morning, Cooper, Eli, Peyton, Dad, and Mom visit the children's grandparents in Mississippi. Of course, everyone is smiling and happy. The drive is long, and the boys pass the time by playing football trivia. Once they arrive, the story focuses on specific plays, which are highlighted on the endpapers. After spending the day at Grandma Sis's, who looks quite young and sexy, the family drives to visit the other grandparents, who look quite a bit older. Again, there is no plot beyond the boys practicing in different yards. There is absolutely no character development. The illustrations were done in digital media. The figures are awkward and stiff, with overly stylized faces that always seem just a little too big for the rest of their bodies.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City

I bought this book for my 7 year old grandson who loves sports. I thought it would be a good way to encourage him to read for pleasure. It worked. He liked the story and thought the pictures were great. He loves Eli and Peyton Manning and thought it was neat that they could write books as well as play football.

My 6 year old is a huge football fan and a big Manning fan. What he loved most about this book was the football plays illustrated on the inside covers of the book. He's always asking to run the "buttonbook" or the "hook and ladder" plays. The story teaches the importance of family around the love of football. Perfect for the little football nut.

O.K., maybe it's not quite great literature. Maybe the illustrations won't win a Caldecott. To quote the bizarrely dismissive editorial review, there's no character development. So what? The Mannings display enough real character in real life to justify a dozen books. The brothers like each other and admire their parents and grandparents. And they play football. And they represent all the good aspects of sports that we hope our kids will somehow learn. How can this be bad?

I'm based in Denver, the new home of Manning mania. Today was "M" day at my grandson's pre-school. Kids picked things that started with "M" and wrote them on a big poster. Among the words were Mickey Mouse, moose, and Manning. I'll take all of the inspirational picture books they want to print.

I teach 2nd grade and always have a Super Bowl Day in my class. The students do lots of Math activities on this day. I wanted to incorporate Language Arts this year and found this book that Peyton Manning happen to help author. It was age appropriate and a sweet story.
