I Love Footy! written by Matt Zurbo
Published by Windy Hollow Books
Do you love footy?
What does it feel like to you when you pick up a footy and run out onto the ground?
Do you feel like a warrior going in to battle?
Do you feel as strong as ram?
Or as fast as a mountain lion?
I Love Footy! will delight young sports fanatics as they imagine the thrill they get when playing a sport they love. The clever metaphors in this story are accompanied by gorgeous illustrations of the main character in different scenarios.
Have you ever played against kids that were built like brick walls? OUCH! Yes, footy can get a little rough sometimes.
I Love Footy! not only looks at the excitement that this sport can generate but it also looks at the fun you can have with your mates because footy is a team sport after all! And lets not forget it can be a sport for boys AND girls which the illustrations in the book prove.
This book is definitely an interactive experience that parents will want to get involved with as they turn each page with their child they can laugh and imagine or perhaps remember how playing footy can make you feel.
