Summary

Summary

When Etienne takes his cousin out to play street hockey for the first time, he has a lot of explaining to do. Street hockey is nothing like ice hockey. Everyone has to wear a No. 9 Canadiens hockey sweater, but beyond that, the game has more to do with a fun day in the snow than with winning or losing. Etienne's cousin comes away with a talisman and a story worth passing on.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Etienne (nicknamed ET) takes his visiting cousin (the unnamed narrator) out to play street hockey in the snow. The neighborhood children improvise an exciting game dominated by their own rules, which ensure that everybody plays and gets the chance to score. Bouchard devises a clever twist when the cousin reveals her identity. The final spread shows her as an adult passing along her hockey sweater (a gift from ET that she's saved through the years) to her daughter. Large, colorful, and expressive cartoons show hockey-playing youngsters whose faces radiate enthusiasm and a love of the game (even though the noses look as if they all belong to the same family). There is a dearth of picture books on hockey, and this one can fill a gap.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA (c) Copyright 2010.

Excerpts

Excerpts

The ball hit the road and the game was on. Once the game started, time stopped for me. For all of us. We played. And played. And played. And were they good! I never saw a pro handle a puck the way these kids handled an old red ball. Excerpted from That's Hockey by David Bouchard All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.
