This week our football team will play in the football playoffs, our school is Co-Op’ed with another small local school for sports and this is there first ever playoff bout in co-op history. My son is the water boy for the football team and my husband is one of the coaches. So lately I have been hearing about football a lot! To celebrate our playoff entry I grabbed a couple of fun Husker books to get my boys pumped up about the upcoming game.
This is a simple book to read but it still holds some very meaningful images to my family. We farm and ranch and this story is an illustration of life in Nebraska. We sat down and enjoyed this story as a family, it helped reinforce the alphabet for our kindergartener and we just enjoyed the pictures and words that went along with the pictures.
Next we opened up the book Nebraska Cornhusker Football, and although some of the facts were a bit outdated, my son and husband loved it all the same. Facts about our team filled the pages and we had a good time reminiscing over games of the past. We will definitely be purchasing this book so that we can continue recording these facts in our memories.
Finally, I pulled out a true antique in my son’s opinion! This book is lays out the story of the Huskers, from back in the day. We just enjoyed every bit of this book. An oldie but a goodie, with facts about our Huskers and the history of the team. I would use this sort of book variety in my classroom to be used in research papers and for entertainment reading. I know two people at my house who read and reread these books! I enjoyed this weeks book load, that’s no doubt!
