As a parent, I love that our girls’ favorite pastime is reading. It makes road trips much easier, when they can pass the time lost in a great story. I especially, love it when I see them reading books that also teach valuable lessons. The Official Adventures is a new children’s chapter book series (set in Minnesota), that has countless important lessons. These books should even keep some of the sport fanatics interested as hockey is a main theme.
The books tell the tale of two brothers, Blaine and Cullen. On and off the ice, they have deep love for the game and also each other! Cullen is the all-star team captain and Blaine, who has Down syndrome, is the team manager and clearly the “unsung hero” of the team. The brothers join Rylee and Rosee, America’s favorite referees, in game day adventures that will have elementary and middle school aged readers laughing out loud, fist bumping the pages and cheering for more stories. Packed to the brim with laughter, love and lessons, “The Official Adventures” is sure to steal young reader’s hearts.
The first two books in the series “Drop the Puck, It’s Hockey Season” and “Drop the Puck, Shoot for the Cup” are out now, with the third book “Drop the Puck, Let’s Play Hockey” set to be released later this Fall.
Drop the Puck: It’s Hockey Season – The Official Adventures Series drops the puck with a tale of two brothers, Blaine and Cullen.
