Goodnight, Football, by Michael Dahl, illustrated by Christina Forshay

I don't know about you, but I am ready for football season!  Goodnight, Football is a cute children's book that will get little kids (and their daddies and mommies) ready for the most wonderful time of the year.

The book follows a family attending a night football game.  As the family cheers for the home team, the artist captures the excitement of the game through the eyes of the kids.  The band, the cheerleaders, the exciting action on the field, all come alive.

When it's time to go home, they say goodnight to the team, the bleachers, the concession stand, the moon, and the little boy snuggles up in bed with his football, dreaming of the next time they get to go to a game.

Michael Dahl and illustrator Christina Forshay clearly love the game of football.  This book captures the best of the football game experience and will help parents pass along the love of the game to their children.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
