PreS-Gr 1–It’s football season, and the big game is ready to be played. Helmets, flags, flamingo cheerleaders, pads, moms, the band, chicks, and dads have gathered together to watch the Eagles play the Turkeys. “Flag football! Hooray! The big game is today!” The game ends in a tie, but not before a loose ball and a confused chicken cause a little mayhem. This silly and sweet easy reader has gentle rhymes, busy illustrations, mostly one-syllable words, and a happy ending. Pair with Stemple’s other silly bird books Toucan with Two Cans and Flamingo Bingo.
VERDICT With whimsical birds in a ridiculous scenario, this will surely make new readers giggle.
