missing one important point!

This book is generally good. However, it missed one very important part. It failed to introduce the different players in the game. For a person who knows nothing about this sport, s/he would be very confused when the author starts to talk about line back, quarter back, etc. It definitely should have a chapter to explain all those different names for the players.Also there was one minor wording problem, I think. On page 31, it has "a tube not unlike a lipstick." What does it mean "not unlike?" I think that he can choose a better word for that.

Great Christmass gift for the young football fans

My son (4.5) recenly got excited about football. This book is excellent for providing him with all the basic facts about the game--from its historic origins and development over time, to the role of the uniforms, helmets, coaches' responsibilities, etc. Must admit that it helped me as well to become at least a little literate in my son's latest obsession.As in all Eyewitness books, it is structured in "chapters" detailing one aspect of the game. Good quality pictures and clear captions further help the kids understand the game.

Another DK Winner

I am an elementary school librarian and this book has been a smashing success in my library, especially with 2nd to 5th grade boys. The pictures are done in the DK style and draw even the most reluctant reader to this book. The book covers a basic history of the game, complete with old pictures, which the kids love, in addition to information about football today. It has interesting trivia that the kids love sharing with each other and pictures of all the current football superstars. This one is a sure fire winner.
