The Magic Hockey Stick (Picture Puffin Books) Reviews
This was a great book! My 7yr old hockey player loved it. I found it very cute. I would buy more books by this author.
My 2 and 4 year old like hockey and they love this book. We picked it up at the library and were very pleasantly surprised to find such a refreshingly modern book. It is about a family that accidently end up buying Wayne Gretzky's hockey stick at an auction. The daughter plays hockey and the stick helps her to play better. But in the mean time, Wayne Gretzky goes into a slump without it. The girl decides she must return the stick to him. I cannot do the book justice though. It is a rhyming verse book that is so easy to read and there is alot of humor in it, yet it has a nice lesson. My kids have tons of books but they love this one and it is one that I do not get sick of reading. Thank you to the author's for something new and refreshing.
Great book for young hockey players
My 2.5 year old insists I read this to him every night. He's quite obsessed with hockey. Even though the book might be a good book for an older age group as well, it is still perfect for the younger crowd too.
Fun Story about The Great One's hockey stick. Easy buy for anyone who has a kid and loves hockey.
Bought for my grandson. I'm sure he'll love this book. It's a birthday gift.
Got this book to read to my daughter. It is a great story and she enjoys it because the main character is actually a girl. Hard to find hockey books about little girls.
Nice book for young children, used as part of a baby shower gift with sex of baby unknown, it was a boy yesterday. I'm sure the whole family will enjoy reading this to their son, they are a hockey family. Came on time and nicely wrapped.
