Description

A sporty take on This Is the House that Jack Built!

This is the rink where Jack plays.

This is the ice so white and slick,
Where players practise skating tricks,
Down at the rink where Jack plays.

Incorporating lively hockey action, sports values and team play in gentle, rhythmic text, this book is a perfect read aloud for hockey fans, both young and old.

Editorial Review

 

Praise for Take Me Out to the Ice Rink:  

 

"While the gimmick of new words in a familiar tune may be what initially piques readers' interest, it's the unique lyrics, energetic flow, and friendly message which ultimately make this simple story of neighbourhood friends playing a fun game of hockey stand on its own." - CM: Canadian Review of Materials
