Bedtime Story: T is for Touchdown by Brad Herzog

Synopsis: "Illustrated by Mark BraughtThe sounds of autumn include the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot and the thump of the kickoff starting the first home football game. Sleeping Bear Press is proud to continue our bestselling sports series with "Tis for Touchdown: A Football Alphabet. "Sports writer Brad Herzog's easy-to-read-aloud rhymes engage even the youngest of readers, while hardcore fans can devour the detailed expository that covers the sport of the pigskin, from A-Z and end zone to end zone. Plays and players are just a few of the topics covered."

My Review: We are big NFL fans in our house and it is playoff season. We like to encourage Munchkin in all various interests but we do like to help him find a connection with what is on TV in the house. So I had to pick this book up, being football season and he is learning his ABCs. I like how this book features all levels of the sport and various players, it doesn't seem to favor any one team (though a few are mentioned specifically). This book also features a more detailed history of the item with each letter, while it is way more advanced that a children's book, it is something that Munchkin can cherish throughout time.
My Rating: It is a little long for a young child but it is a book that can be enjoyed over the years and still read as they grow older. I give it a rating of Four Paws.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
