The Daily Booktalk: Fact Friday: Hockey Then to Wow!

Our Fact Friday might seem familiar to anyone who reads this blog regularly. I reviewed it on Monday. The Daily Booktalk originated on my library webpages and the morning announcements. I decided to migrate it here partly because I thought these "mini-reviews" are better than no review at all. 

Sports Illustrated Kids: Hockey: Then to Wow! This is the third book in the Then to Wow series and as sports history books go, this series delivers the content beautifully. The NHL celebrates its 100th year this year, though hockey has been played since the late 1800s. The extra-wide layout is perfect for timelines of events, players, uniforms and equipment. It's crammed with photos, both vintage and full-color, as well as facts and trivia about the game, teams and players. If hockey is not your cup of tea, check out the other two entries in the series - baseball and/ or football.
