Review: Go Buckeyes Activity Book by Darla Hall


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
The college and professional activity books are packed full of games, mazes, puzzles, trivia, mazes, dream team player cards, team songs, writing prompts and other interactive challenges. The book challenges kids of all ages to be creative and use their imaginations. Some things are easy, some are hard. This book will keep your child engaged for hours. Whether you are taking a road trip, hanging out at home or getting a gift for someone, the team sports activity books are sure to be a TOUCHDOWN!Every college book also has an accompanying app that can be downloaded through iTunes on any ipad, iphone or ipod.
MY TAKE:
I don't watch US college sports coverage, but I thought this was an interesting book nonetheless.

Go Buckeyes Activity Book contains drawing activities, crosswords, word searches, coloring pages, etc., majority of which are centered around Ohio State University's Buckeyes.

If your child is a Buckeyes fan, or you or your spouse are Buckeyes fans and want to share that with your child, then you should definitely get this book. It's the perfect book for long car trips or while you're at a restaurant and you're waiting for your food to arrive. There's tons of different activities here, so kids won't get easily bored. They can draw, color, do crosswords, come up with an imaginary dream team, play with cut-outs, and write, among others. The activities are non-gender-specific, so little boys and girls can both enjoy them. The book doesn't just center around football too. Some of the activities are about basketball, baseball, and one has blank cards so you can choose your own sport.

This book also has an accompanying app, if your child likes playing with your gadgets, or when they've finished the book.

While this book is best-suited for Buckeyes fans, your child doesn't have to be one to enjoy the activity. He or she might even learn a few new things since there's Buckeyes and Ohio State University trivia on some pages of the book.

Thanks to NetGalley and In the Sports Zone for the e-ARC.

THE GOOD:

  1. There's a variety of activities to choose from.
  2. You can learn more about OSU and the Buckeyes.
  3. A portion of the book's profits goes to local hospitals in the form of activity books for children.

THE BAD:

  1. I would have preferred more colors or brighter colors than the ones used (aside from the Buckeyes colors).

READ IT IF:

  1. Your child is a Buckeyes fan.
  2. Your child likes watching college football/basketball/other sports.
  3. You are looking for an activity book for your child to use while at restaurants.
