Puckster’s First Hockey Tryout
Trying out to make a team can make a player nervous, but trying out for a special team that will have its games televised takes the nerves to a whole new level. Puckster’s First Hockey Tryout follows a group of friends throughout their tryout for a national hockey team who will have a big game against the Russian Tigers. Puckster, the main character, works very hard. He warms up before practice, he listens carefully to the coach’s instructions, and he encourages his friends as they go through the tryout drills. At the end of the day, Puckster wonders if his hard work will have been enough for him to make the team. And, if he does make the team, how will his friends react?
Puckster’s First Hockey Tryout is a sweet story about determination and practice and the importance of a positive attitude. With strong moral lessons underneath this engaging narrative, Lorna Schultz Nicholson creates a story that is both educational and captivating. This story is a great read-aloud book that will speak to young girls and boys alike.
