My son Derek is 8 and in 2nd grade. Derek is absolutely obsessed with every single sports team and player. While he loves to play sports and has cheered for local teams for a few years, this year Derek has a true passion to learn the ins and outs of every sport, every team and every player. He knows nicknames, history, player and team records. It’s amazing how much information he takes in and can tell us about his favorite players and teams.
Last year at the school book fair Derek bought himself a book about Quarterbacks and so began the morning sports reading ritual. QuarterBack Superstars for under $4 has been read and reread for weeks and months. Luckily Santa caught wind of this minor obsession of Dereks and anything that promotes reading is a huge bonus so he (Santa) took the liberty to bring Derek a few more of these Scholastic Books for Christmas.

My 5 year old Hayley is just starting to read but she is also a soccer player. She quit last season to pursue a career in dance and then declared that she “made a huge mistake” and soccer is what she is “made to play” so I just ordered her this Winners Never Quit book by Mia Hamm so she can learn about perseverance and pushing onward even when things don’t go her way!
