Book - 2009

After spending most of their parents' money on hockey fees and equipment, and after waking the house up at 6 am for countless early morning practices—isn't it only right that these kids give an expression of thanks and love (and a whole lot of laughs) to their parents? These books do just that. They were created as an opportunity for a Novice Rep Hockey Team, a little group of 8 year-old puck chasers, to express their feelings about their moms and dads, to tell them what they think for a change. The reasons they give are honest, funny, and true—all that you would expect from a group of 8-year olds! Asked why he loves his hockey mom, one answers without hesitating: “because she always skips out on work for it.” Why does his dad deserve thanks—not for the endless offside drills?—no, more for “distracting me while I am trying to play.” And their illustrations, done with crayons and markers, are simply charming.
