Brady Brady books are hockey — with heart!
Brady’s friend Tree loves to play hockey, but there’s someone in the stands who’s taking all of the fun out of the game — his dad. He’s determined to have a son in the NHL and it’s making Tree’s life miserable.
Hockey’s fun, but what Tree really loves to do is sing. One day he gets his big chance, singing the anthem before an Icehogs game. Tree’s voice impresses everyone. Well, everyone except his father. With the support of his teammates, Tree decides to make a stand and the compromise he works out with his dad may just take them to the NHL yet.
The Brady Brady series is much-loved by teachers and coaches for its engaging character education themes. In Brady Brady and the Singing Tree Brady and his friends confront issues of empathy, respect and acceptance.

Praise for Brady Brady:
“. . . the Brady Brady series shows young children being confronted by child-appropriate difficulties, such as teasing and pushy parents, and finding ways, sometimes with some adult help, to solve them. Chuck Temple’s cartoon-style illustrations add a great deal to the books’ pleasure, and his attention to details make the local ice rinks and their dressing rooms come alive.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials
