The second book in the series, this 128-page, full color collection of football profiles, facts and stats will bring the best players in professional football history to life.

Young sports fans will return to again and again to The Big Book of Who: Football as an encyclopedia football resource with the classic touches that Sports Illustrated Kids is famous for— informative age-appropriate writing and world-class action photography.

Featuring gridiron greats like Dan Marino and Emmitt Smith, as well as current players such as Tom Brady, Cam Newton and Ray Lewis, The Big Book of Who: Football highlights football’s greatest:

  • Champions: The players who achieved football’s ultimate prize, many of them more than once.
  • Personalities: Men who are known for more than just the way they play the game on the field.
  • Record Breakers: Players whose feats set the standards by which future accomplishments are measured.
  • Super Scorers: Their specialty is putting the ball either through the uprights, or into the end zone.
  • Yardage Kings: The players who have excelled at moving their teams up and down the field.

“We hope to inspire kids to learn more about football icons who made the game of professional football so great,” said Bob Der, Editorial Director of Sports Illustrated Kids. “We don’t just see football as another sport. It is a part of our culture and a way of life. This book will help get young fans interested in the history of the game allow them to enjoy and appreciate it even more.”

My Take on the Book
If you or someone that you know are fans of football, this is the perfect book to share and read together. This book has a little bit of everything within it to intrigue and interest any football fan. Though geared toward kids, any fan can learn form the information and statistics shared in this book and with the full color amazing photos, you will be drawn into the action too. While I love watching football, I can't say that I am an expert at the intricacies of the players as well as other information as it relates to the game itself. After reading this I can say that I know so much more than when I started and you will too!
