Whether you are a sucker for children's books that feature cute rhymes, learning the alphabet, or introducing sports and culture, I have a pretty awesome one to recommend...
R is for Rugby!!
Written by Mike Petri, a local Bay Ridge dad of 2, who also happens to be a player on USA's National Rugby Team (rated #11 "hottest thighs of the 2016 World Cup" no less!!), R is for Rugby is educational not just for kids, but also for parents like me who don't know a darn thing about rugby! HA! And obviously it's a MUST HAVE for any family with rugby (or sports in general) running through their veins already...
Basically, it's an alphabet book with each page featuring a rugby word starting with a different letter of the alphabet. The rhymes are both clever and cute, even chuckle-worthy at times, with great illustrations by Max Thompson.
I mean, come on, "sin bin"?? Love it! I may have a new word for my toddler's time outs...
Played by over 2 million people in 100 countries, rugby is one of the most popular sports in the world. Whether you're a player or a "non-rugger", you'll definitely get a kick out of this book (HA!!! Pun TOTALLY intended). R is for Rugby is self-published and available on Amazon and their website for $14.95.
