The lovable Life in the Wild trio cant wait to get out on the ice to play hockey. Except, well, theyre going to have to!Its wintertime, and the bear, the moose and the beaver cant wait for hockey season to start. Theyre so eager, in fact, they head out onto the ice before its thick enough, and they all fall through. Twice. While they wait for the lake to freeze, they try to take their minds off hockey. Theres competitive napping. Karaoke. Lots of comfort food. Until, at last, the day arrives when the ice is ready. But, after all that time not being active, are they ready?Part of the bestselling Life in the Wild picture book series from Nicholas Oldland, this funny romp is, at its heart, a love letter to the sport of hockey and the joys of playing in the wild outdoors. Oldlands distinctive dry humor shines here, making this a fun read-aloud. But the hilarious visual story --- including the characters facial expressions and numerous asides --- mean children, even nonreaders, will also want to spend time with the pages on their own. Children who love hockey will appreciate the friends devotion to the game and the difficulty of waiting for conditions to be just right, but every child who has had to wait for something (that is, every child) will relate to the situation. In this, the book offers some character education lessons on patience and perseverance. Separately, there are connections to healthy outdoor activity and winter safety.
