Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1^-2. Since it was first published in 1966, this book has served as both a simple introduction to the game of football and an easy reader. Now, Kessler has re-illustrated the story in full color. Libraries that have the older version will want to update, and others will want to purchase this story about a group of animals who organize a football game after watching a young team at play. Ilene Cooper --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

I came across an old copy of this book at a thrift shop. After reading this book to my 4 year old son it became a favorite of his.

A strange object falls into the middle of the woods where a group of animals inspect it and wonder what it is. Soon a boy comes to get it and takes it back to the football feild. The animals follow and watch from a distance as the boys play football. Then the animals have an a brilliant idea to play their own game of football. What will they use for a the ball?

This is a great book for 2 to 6 year olds and any child learning to read.

Both of our sons love sports. And both have loved this book. It's simple, easy to understand and easy to enjoy. I, and my boys, like it because the stars are the animals, and the little boys that play football. The pictures are simple and descriptive enough to convey the message and the story moves along quickly enough to keep short attention spans occupied. We've read Kick pass and Run hundreds of times in the last 4 years, and now that we own a copy of it ourselves, we'll probably read it twice as often.

My 8 year old nephew started playing football this year in our local Mighty Mite division and he had a great time. I always like to get him a book as part of his present for gift-giving occasions, so looking for something football related for his birthday was a no-brainer.:)

This book was perfect for him. He is able to read it himself (though we enjoy taking turns reading it together). He likes the animal characters and enjoys following the events of the story.

We've read and re-read this book so many times it is now falling apart (simply because it is a paperback). Great easy-reader. Builds confidence and a bit of a silly story. Fun read for kids.

My first-grade son enjoyed reading this, the level fit nicely - not too hard, not too easy.

It gave me an opportunity to go through some football terms that helped him understand the game better. The animals playing football part was nice but not my favorite part - it cost the book the one star.

If you like sports/baseball and want to teach perseverance, the value of practice, the notion that everyone needs to work to be good then I recommend "Here comes the strike out". same level of reading but more life lesson value.Here Comes the Strikeout!

My 4 and 6 year olds love football and they get a bedtime story every night.

Can't get better than this! We have animals saying funny things, there's some learning about football for the kids, and there were no injuries. I think the duck has a "take the ball and go home" moment, but what do you expect when you play football with a duck?

Fun book that I've read several times to the kids, upon request.

The story used football terms accurately and was really funny and interesting for both me and my son. Also, the reading level was as described - a good number of words he easily knows and many he had to sound out. It was the best "I can read" book I found in a while.

This is the best football book. I wish there were more football books like this one so I can learn more about football. . It helped me understand the game better. I loved this so much. I read it all the time.
