Crosby’s Golden Goal
By Mike Leonetti
Illustrated by: Gary McLaughlin
This is a wonderful picture book for kids about the power of being inspired by heroes who one wants to be like and emulate.
Many young boys like Tyler love to play hockey. But hockey can easily take over a kid’s life. There is no chance to do the normal things such as hangout with friends and family. So, Tyler takes a break from hockey for a while. But he still decides to follow the games and his favourite player Sidney Crosby. Then Tyler gets the chance to be in the stands for one of the most memorable games of a life time. Tyler then realizes how much he misses the game.
The illustrations in this book bring the message of the story to life. It is an inspiring book for the older child who is sport-minded. It may even inspire more boys (and girls) to become hockey players!
