Review: I love this book and is one of my favourites of the series teaching young girls of different sports that they could do is a certain yes to me. As sport is still primarily a male orientated area it’s wonderful to see a book showcasing that girls can do it.
Allie who is a hockey player shows exactly what it takes to play, from the exercise and warm ups that are required, to her eating and sleeping routines. She shows how important team work is and other sports they can do together.
I really enjoyed this book and I love this series it’s so educational, so much fun, so inspirational and so perfect to read with your young daughters. Plus they always have the fun cut outs to print and play with.
