My First Book of Football: A Rookie Book


I’ll admit: I’ve probably been to more football games than your average fan. BUT, I hardly understand the game! Truth be told, I was a BANDIE and traveled all around the PA tri state area performing at high school, college, and professional games. Ask me if I knew anything other than Touchdown?

I didn’t. I knew touchdown cuz that was when the band played the Fight Song!

I figured now is the time to learn football.  How hard could it be?

My First Book of Football: A Rookie Book

You can imagine how excited I was when this little guy arrived in the mail. A football book for rookies!

I was so IN!

Also? I was deep in the middle of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and I need a light, quick, easy read! This book broke it down to me gently.

  • 11 players on a team (odd number but whatever)
  • end zone (mkay)
  • Tackle, huddle, coin toss (I already knew that)
  • downs and yards (starting to get tricky)
  • First down (what???)
  • Field Goal (kinda like a touchdown but without all the dancing)
  • HALFTIME!!! Bring out the marching bands!!!

So anyway, you get my point. They get to the basics that even a non football person like me could understand. The photos and the comments are adorable and perfect for your little rookie football player.

PUT ME IN COACH, I’M READY TO PLAY!!

The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy – a #Gr8tBooks Read

Tonight is the Gr8t Reads Book Club

and we are discussing The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy

You may recall that I finished this book during

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!

My review will be a little different this time.

I will interpret the book through greeting cards

Evelyn warning Vivienne against inviting the Hun into the house

Little Millie enjoying some fresh gache that her Mummy made

Vivienne and Gunther sharing a book together

Little Millie and her best friend Simon

discussing the “ghosts” that they see in Mr. Mahy’s barn.

the ghost turns out to be a hungry escaped worker

and finally

the occupation is over!

Let’s party!

I give this gr8t read 4 paws!

Books Dewey's Read-a-thon

I’m a #Readathon Reader!

I’m excited to be participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon!

To be sure, I’ve participated in previous ‘thon’s but only as a cheerleader.

Can you imagine ME as a cheerleader?

Normally I wouldn’t but cheering others as they read books?

It’s a natural for me.  This time, I’m going in:

Hunkering down and reading.

Clearing out my TBR pile.

Ready?

Set?

Go!
