By Per-Henrik Gürth

Bestselling children's book author and illustrator Per-Henrik Gürth has created a colourful, lively tribute to hockey with this picture book for the youngest fans. The action-packed story follows a group of animals who take to the ice to play a rousing game of hockey. Highlighted on the pages in large type throughout the story are hockey vocabulary words and terms. The vocabulary ranges from the basics — such as team, net, shot — to more complex concepts — face-off, line change, penalty — and the author has cleverly used and defined each of them within the story. For example, on the two-page spread where the term power play appears, the illustration is of the two teams facing each other on the ice, five players on one side, four on the other, and the text reads, "It's five against four — a power play!" Every spread has at least one word or term, though some have more, and on two of the pages the words simply label things in the illustrations.

This terrific book could be used three different ways, within language arts as well as physical education. The fun, dramatic story can stand alone as a great read, with pre-readers easily able to use the context of the simple artwork to interpret the language, while the highlighted words and terms offer wonderful vocabulary enhancement for beginning readers. And the content provides an excellent basic tutorial on how to play hockey, and on team sports in general.

By Roch Carrier, Illustrated by Sheldon Cohen

First published in 1979 in a collection of adult stories, Roch Carrier's The Hockey Sweater is now firmly established as a Canadian classic! Basing the story on his own childhood growing up in St. Justine, Quebec, in the 1940s, Carrier describes the passion that he and his friends had for hockey, and particularly for the exploits of hockey great Maurice "The Rocket" Richard of the Montreal Canadiens. Roch and his friends all have red Canadiens sweaters emblazoned with Richard's famous number 9. When Roch outgrows his sweater, his mother orders him a new one from Eaton's in Montreal. The sweater that arrives 2 weeks later, though, isn't a Canadiens sweater but the blue-and-white sweater of the Toronto Maple Leafs, which Roch can't imagine wearing under any circumstances! But wear the Leafs sweater he must, with hilarious consequences. Sheldon Cohen's warm, rich illustrations are a perfect match for Carrier's exuberant text.

Softcover containing 24 pages.
