My grandson recently received The Field for his sixth birthday. He’s a soccer player and loves it, but so does his younger sister who is in preschool. She brought it with her for her last sleepover at our home. She loves the illustrations, especially the page with the children going belly flop in the mud which gets a huge laugh. I’m a retired kindergarten teacher and can easily imagine that it would be a great read-aloud selection for teachers of young children. There’s so much to talk about: favorite games, playing with friends, winning and losing. The print is simple and bold and I notice her pointing correctly at some of the words as she reads it to herself. I know we’ll have many hours of enjoyment and learning with The Field.
