Best Hockey Books for Kids! Excellent timing--we have a hockey player visiting the library to read to kids in just a couple weeks!

Oh thanks! I love reading these lists annually.

Now that is cool, Adrienne. I may even suggest that to our library. We have a minor-league hockey team nearby that's very popular.

Jules, I have a good time collecting lists and get so excited every time I see the names of people I know on them! Our blogging/writing chums are doing well this year.

fantastic roundup -- many thanks.

You're welcome, Olugbemisola. I'm looking forward to your upcoming book!
