Football, food, fans, and fun are highlighted in this entertaining bedtime board book. The rhyming text, vibrant illustrations, and gentle ending perfectly capture the love of the game. Goodnight Football is a win for everyone!Community Review
My 16 month old loves all things football. He asks for this book night and day (of course in addition to all other things football related). It seems like it is advanced enough to capture a 2 or 3 year olds attention as well but still colorful enough to keep his interest. I love it as a good night book and he kisses the boy at the end night night each time. Very sweet!
We buy almost everything that’s titled “Goodnight” something or other book. This book is not like the original “Good Night Moon” as it is a little wordy and not a rhyming book. Some of the sentences are long and not easy to read like the original book. However, it is about football, and we like anything football related. We still read this book all the time; but it doesn’t compare to “Good Night Moon”.
We checked out “Goodnight Baseball” from our local library and my son LOVED that book so much! I’m more of a football fan than baseball so I had to get this one for him just in time for football season!

If you keep this in mind, you will find you have more drive and passion for the game as you play.Tackle each play like its the last you’ll ever partake in.

If you give 150 percent on every play, you never have to second-guess yourself with what could have been and your team will be better off for it too.When you have one workout that works for you, keep doing it. Once the plan is started, you want to avoid having to constantly change it up. Sticking with it will give you the most benefit. Don’t keep giving up a workout only to try again with something different next week.If you want to involve the whole family in a game of football, make it flag football that you play. Flag football is much safer than tackling, so it works well for all generations of players and all genders too. You can have a whole bunch of family bonding time with the game.If you have good work ethic, it will factor in to the amount of playing time you get.

Focus on the basics, including quads, glutes and hamstrings.The best attribute a player can have is speed. That means that bigger players aren’t always better.

Warming up reduces your risk for injuries during drills and games. It also keep your muscles in good health and is a great way to slowly increase your heart rate.
