" Cute. Great introduction to football for a young reader. Love the rhyming. " said.

" I'll say it: "Goodnight Moon" is a a wonderful picture book, but it is a little cutesy. Why not tuck the little guy in after a rousing college football game instead?For more great picture books for little guys, see: http://www.talestoldtall.com/B4BPictu... " said.

" Young football fans will enjoy this read about the experience of going to a football game. While the game itself plays an important role, the focus is on the spectator experience. This will resound with families where football is popular. " said.

" Goodnight Football is a perfect bedtime read for football fanatics (parent or child!). The illustrations are bright and cheery and the text is short and sweet. The book provides an opportunity to explain the basics of the sport to a young child, with clear illustrations to aid their understanding.Note: I received a digital galley of this book through NetGalley. " said.

"A boy goes with his family to a lively football game. Afterward, he wishes goodnight to the goalposts, the mascot, the bleachers, and everything else he loved about the game. The brief, rhyming text describes the sights and sounds of the stadium, and the clear, colorful illustrations provide further detail. Goodnight Football is an entertaining look at a popular sport, and its nod to Goodnight Moon helps children wind down for a night in bed -- perhaps clutching their own footballs, like the boy in the story does. The simple text and pictures would work well for even very young children, although some terms might need explanations if children have not attended many games." said.

"A young reader book, written in rhyme telling the story of a football game. The story begin when the lights are turned on on the field and the team runs out and takes the reader through the game until they turn the lights out. The rhyming story uses football terms, the ball is snapped. . . the quarterback’s sacked and using the terminology of the game provides a good discussion starter between the adult reading and the child listening to the story.

After the game the fans go home but not before we read the beginning of the goodnights. Goodnight players, good night coach, goodnight cheerleaders, good night concession stands . . . Reminiscent of Good Night Moon the author has a done a good job introducing the game of football to younger readers with the rhyming text and illustrations.

My Review: As I have said before, we are huge football fans in this house and as soon as I came across this book I grabbed it. I have been saving it for the night of an important football game. Munchkin loved all the elements of the story, seeing the sites of a game as well as some of the plays. The book is also a great quality book with a hard cover and thick pages that are difficult for little ones to rip or crumple.

"This picture book from Sports Illustrated Kids follows a family as they partake in their favorite pastime, Friday Night Football. It relives their adventure as they arrive and experience the excitement of the pre-game activities, to the action on the field, and finally as they happily head home for bed.

This rhyming ode to what appears to be high school football will charm parents and children alike with its bright illustrations and rhyming text. The beginning and middle build the action and excitement of a attending and playing in the game with interesting perspective pictures like the one of the huddle with the perspective of the reader as if they were lying on the ground and looking up at all the faces of the players as they discuss their strategy for the next play. The end brings us in for a cozy, soft landing as the bright colors and crowds fade when the family leaves the stadium to head home for bed with happy memories of the game.

This would make a fine read aloud to a class or storytime with a football/sports theme or a good lap book for bedtime. I would recommend this book for purchase to any school or public library.
