Sports writer Brad Herzog's easy-to-read-aloud rhymes engage even the youngest of readers, while hardcore fans can devour the detailed expository that covers the sport of the pigskin, from A-Z and end zone to end zone.

Gr 3-5 This is much more than an alphabet book for beginning readers. It is a picture book with large, richly colored, realistic oil paintings, and many facts about football, including some history, rules, well-known players, and famous moments. Each pair of upper- and lower-case letters is represented by one or more terms or people ("N," for instance, is for Notre Dame, the NFL, and Nicknames) and a four-line rhyming verse. "No college team has ever had/as much success and fame/as football's famous fighting N -/noble Notre Dame." Although the text is a bit dense at times, this is an informative look at the game for independent readers." -Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI" Copyright 2005 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
