Review: Goodnight Football by Michael Dahl

I received this book from the publisher at BEA 2014

Age Range: 4-7 years
Grade Level: Preschool-2
Publisher: Fiction Picture Books (July 1, 2014)

From the opening kick off to the final whistle, Goodnight Football will bring the excitement of a football game to the youngest fan. The rhyming text, vibrant illustrations, and gentle ending will capture the love of the game through a child's eyes.A celebration of football, friendship, and family. This book is sure to be a touchdown for every football fan!"

Goodnight Moon is one of my son's favorite books EVER! I was so excited to snag a signed copy and I knew Luke would love it. What I really enjoyed about this book was that it gave you real football terms. I am so not a sporty type of gal...unless it's soccer. It was easy to understand and it also rhymed, which was a plus. If you're gonna emulate a book after the original then it better rhyme! The illustrations were also very beautiful and in tune with the story. Lukie and Mommy recommend snuggling up at bedtime to read this one. We both give it 5 stars!
