Editorial Reviews



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
