Description

Hipoint Text Input EditorA quintessentially Canadian take on the old lady who swallows everything! There was an old lady who swallowed a puck. What rotten luck! She swallowed a puck.And now it's stuck.So down goes a goalie to save the puck, followed by a mask, two gloves, a stick, a net, the rink, some fans, the Cup, a ref, and some players. Soon, the old lady's belly is swaying and shaking with the hockey game she's just swallowed!The rhyming text, over-the-top silliness, and hockey action will make this book a favourite to be read aloud again and again.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Over at the Rink: A Hockey Counting Book:"Kids don't have to be hockey fans to enjoy the bouncing rhythm of this counting book . . . [Over at the Rink] will have little Crosby wannabes chanting along as the book is read aloud." —Quill & Quire"This cheerful counting book, written to the melody of 'Over in the Meadow,' celebrates all the best things about hockey." —CBC Parents
