Thanks To My Hockey Dad/I Love My Hockey Mom

There is a pretty charming pair of hockey books that will melt the heart of any parent. Especially hockey parents.

Jason Howell is the head coach of the Flyers Novice AE Team. With the help of teacher/hockey mom Jennifer Sutoski, he had his group of seven and eight year olds write down why they loved their hockey dad and hockey mom, complete with an accompanying crayon-drawn picture.

The results were compiled into two similar books -
Thanks to My Hockey Dad and I Love My Hockey Mom. None other than Don Cherry even writes the book's foreword.

The reasons are varied, all touching and honest, some surprising and some down right hilarious. The drawings are equally telling and entertaining.

This would be an excellent book for one hockey parent to give to the other hockey parent under the Christmas tree on behalf of the child. Perhaps an idea for future editions would be to leave a couple of blank pages for our children to personalize the book with their own note and drawing.
