The Big Game
Scholastic Canada Ltd.
Written by Gilles Tibo, illustrated by Bruno St-Aubin
Synopsis from Scholastic Canada:
It’s the championship game and Nicholas’ team is facing the best team in the league. With advice flying faster than pucks, can Nicholas keep his cool and come up with the perfect winning strategy?
It’s easy to see how the whole family can get caught up in hockey when one of the kids play but sometimes this can end up being the child’s focus. Instead of enjoying the game play, all they can hear is shouts from parents, spectators, and coaches. That’s the case for Nicolas in The Big Game. The story does a great job showing all the activity that goes on around a child playing a game of hockey and how it might distract them. it also shows how Nicolas and his friends overcome this distraction.
The Big Game is a great book for any hockey family. It opens up conversations about what to expect during a game and enjoying yourself when you play.
