The Big Game by Tim Green

Rating: ★★★★★

I think that you should read the Big Game and this is why. There was a kid named Danny and he was really good at football and mostly because his dad played in the NFL and Danny and he LOVED football. He was a freshman but he was on the varsity team and there was another junior who is trying to take up his place on the team. Another obstacle was he was really bad at reading and he needed to get 75% or higher to play in the big game. Read the Big Game to find out if he passed the test and if he played in the big game since he is a freshman.

This book is alright. For younger age groups it would be a better read.

I like it, but the characters and plot fall a little short at times, and in 1 or 2 spots, the storyline becomes borderline ridiculously cheesy and predictable.

Hi everyone. My name is Nancy, and I don’t know anything about football.

Hey, I’m not completely inept at sports… I can follow basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, and some others pretty well! Just not, you know, the most popular sport in America. 🙁 I’ve asked friends to explain it to me, but it just doesn’t never gets through. Since this Sunday is THE BIG GAME, I thought I’d tackle this problem the old-fashioned book-nerd way. By reading about it. (And yes, I realize that making a football pun was very old-fashioned and book-nerdy.)

Check out my new reading list — I might not be able to finish them all by Sunday, but at least I’ll be prepared for next year!

Football Genius
by Tim Green
(former Atlanta Falcons linebacker)
After watching a couple plays, Troy White knows the outcome of every football game — not just a guess, but an accurate prediction of each play. He wants to help his favorite team, the Atlanta Falcons (of course), but that might come at a price…



Kickoff! by Tiki Barber (former New York Giant) and Ronde Barber (Tampa Bay Buccaneer)
Junior high is a few days off, and that doesn’t just mean new books and backpacks… For Tiki and Ronde, it means finally playing for the Hidden Valley Eagles, their junior high! Even though Tiki and Ronde are both giant buccaneers now, they were once young students like you.

Getting a little overloaded by puns? 🙁 Okay…



The Great Quarterback Switch by Matt Christopher
Twin brothers Michael and Tom Curtis both love football — but sadly, Michael has to watch from the sidelines in a wheelchair. Their neighbor Ollie claims that if they concentrate hard enough — especially because they have a special bond as twins — they can communicate telephatically with each other. So how does that play out on the field?


Special Mention: Kick the Football, Charlie Brown! by Charles M. Schultz and Judy Katschke
This book might be a breeze of a read for many Kidsmomo-ers, but I just can’t resist mentioning poor Charlie Brown. Why, Lucy, WHHHHHHHY?!

What are your favorite football-related books? Let me know in the comments so I can add it to my to-read list!



Even though she’s lived in the USA most of her life, sometimes Nancy still gets “football” confused with what Americans call “soccer”… even though she played soccer* growing up. No, it doesn’t make any sense.

*Go Stingrays 1991!
