Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-What shines through in both of these books is Gibbons's dedication to presenting the games as fun. Each volume outlines all of the necessary equipment and rules and describes a fictitious game to demonstrate the facts. The illustrations, especially those of the players, clearly reflect the action. Both entries have a glossary with key terms, including important concepts such as teamwork and sportsmanship. Excellent choices for beginner players and readers.

From Booklist

Reviewed with Gibbons' My Basketball Book.

Ages 5-7. Gibbons introduces the basics of basketball and football in two small-format paperback books. Each book identifies the equipment, the court or field, the positions of the players, and a few rules of the game. In the brightly colored artwork, young players, both boys and girls, illustrate this introductory information, then begin a game that adds a touch of narrative and allows for explanation without the tedium of listing one rule after another. Bas ketball begins "Basketball is fun, whether you are playing yourself or rooting for your favorite team." A similar sentence leads off in Football , and that low-key message is at the heart of both presentations. The books don't cover all the rules; indeed, for kids who are intently interested, they will raise as many questions as they answer. Instead, they offer a starting point for young children trying to figure out what's going on in the sport or how to get in the game. Carolyn Phelan

My 2 year old grandson was so happy when I gave him this book. He loves football. He doesn’t understand what football actually is except that his dad watches it and that they guys throw a ball and run around. This is a cute book that explains football in a way that the little ones can understand.
It has some good pictures in there that my grandson loved looking at. He is still too young to understand the whole football game but he was happy to have a book on football.
I Paid full price for this book and this is my honest review.

Football is a complicated sport to teach to a child. There are so many positions, rules, plays, and situations that can happen in a football game! My 2 year old really enjoys watching football on TV and recognizes the football uniforms and ball so I figured I'd get him this book now so we can start introducing the game. It points out the offensive and defensive players, describes the scoring/point system, uses two teams to demonstrate how the game is played and even incorporates the referee and penalties. My 2 year old doesn't fully grasp the game yet but this book will be perfect for when he's around 4 years old.

Got this book for my granddaughter to learn about what's going on during the games she watches her daddy coach. Very good work done by author. I even learned a few new things too. This is the second one I have bought for kids who have daddies coaching high school football. Sure helps them learn terms, game and equipment. Helps to see what daddy is doing as a coach. Won't hesitate to buy another in the future.

And so it begins, our son has been indoctrinated into the world of football. This book is very cute the images, but illustrations are good and my son loves it! This is a great book for any family that loves football and wants to share it with their kids

My three year old loves football. The only thing she wanted for Christmas was a football. I found this book to go with it, and it's great! It does a good job at explaining the rules without being boring.

Can't say why not since my grandson is a football fanatic. Gives the basics, written straight forward. Maybe too dry for my 5 year old? Read it once but he keeps it on his bookshelf so not a total write off.
