Are you ready for some football?

If you're anything like me, the answer is "yes". And just in time for football season comes a board book of rhyming riddles for the toddler set, so they can learn a bit about the equipment and people involved in the game. Riddles exist for the football and goalpost, whistle, helmet, and shoulder pads, referee, quarterback and (somewhat perplexingly) cheerleaders. The illustrations are simple and colorful and provide enough of a hint in most cases that kids have a fair chance of correctly guessing the answer - especially if it's not their first time reading the book or if they've had some exposure to the game (either by watching an older sibling play or by watching TV with parents).

Recommended for sharing with young children born into a football family. A big thanks to Sleeping Bear Press for sending me a review copy of this charming little book.

That book looks wonderful! I'll have to keep my eye open for it.
