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.

Leonard Kessler has illustrated over two hundred books for children, many of which he also wrote, including the I Can Read Books Last One In Is a Rotten Egg; Kick, Pass, and Run; and Here Comes the Strikeout. He lives in Sarasota, Florida.
Lots of text that would be hard for emerging readers. Proficient 1st graders would have trouble with a cold read. OK for 2nd or for reading to a young child who loves football.Published 3 months ago by DRM
