Goodnight, Hockey Fans by Andrew Larsen

Into the Wild

Read Goodnight, Hockey Fans Online Free - A hockey fan’s best night ever.

A young boy doesn’t want to go to bed. The hockey game is on! And he’s worried he won’t be able to fall asleep. After his parents have tucked him in and turned out the light, he decides he’ll listen to the hockey game on a radio placed under his pillow. With the familiar drone of the announcer’s voice for company, the boy drifts off to sleep. And there he is on the ice playing for his favorite team — and scoring the winning goal!

“What a play! What a goal! What a game!” What a beautiful dream!

Award-winning author Andrew Larsen's simple yet evocative story sets just the right tone for the youngest children, who can relate to the boy's disappointment about missing the exciting nighttime game and his fears that he won't be able to fall asleep. Jacqui Lee's illustrations in soothing greens and blues are done in a wonderful blend of nostalgic and contemporary styles that suit the story's timelessness. This book provides all of the appeal of the perfect bedtime story: the reassurance of caring parents tucking the boy in and then coming back later to check on him, the bedtime routine, the atmospheric winter night outside while it's cozy and snug inside, and the promise of dreams come true.

Got in a new batch of books at the library and was beyond excited to see a hockey-themed picture book! This never happens. It's always football or baseball or basketball or track or soccer or literally ANYTHING besides hockey. (Can you tell I'm a hockey fan that feels a little neglected?). Rant fi...

Any child will tell you, bedtime sometimes comes at the worst moment. For example, when the boy is watching a hockey game. He'd like to stay up, but Mom and Dad are pretty clear that it's time to turn in. The boy finds a clever way to soothe himself to sleep where he has sweet dreams. This was a...

A cute story, but something was lacking, and I'm not sure what. The emphasis on the radio broadcast of a hockey game was nice to see, especially as a Pittsburgh Penguins fan who really enjoys listening to the games on the radio. But it still just felt like a lackluster read. Maybe it was a font i...

I have to admit that I have a positive bias toward children's books that are about hockey. As a proud Canadian who also happens to have male children, hockey was a huge part of our lives for many years. Anyway, with that said, I enjoyed both the story and the illustrations in this book. I think th...
