    Copy provided by Blue Slip MediaLike it's predecessors about baseball and football Hockey Then to Wow provides a great overview about the sport Considering that I knew absolutely nothing about hockey it really did cover all of the bases I always love the random facts for years helmets were not reuired and when they finally were players who started playing without them didn't have to wear them That's just weird but I know my readers are interested in the statistics and team overviews I'm not usually fond of oversized books but in this case the extra wide layouts are essential for showing the evolution of uniforms pictured on the cover teams masks and a variety of other interesting specifics The photo illustrations are fantastic and the page layouts are a lot of fun The range of information presented is impressive and there is even a brief section about women in hockeyNot only is this book fun to read but it would be a great resource for a student researching hockey at a specific period of time It would be a good starting point for a History Day project and I know we've used the other volumes when the 7th grade researches the 1960s in preparation for reading The Outsiders There are some books Sports Illustrated could work on football in the 1960s 1970s etc Or Sports in the 1960s These books work; they just reuire a bit sifting
