She shoots, she scores!

When the team goalie gets injured, Little Brother excitedly steps onto the ice to play in the Championship game. He always wanted to be part of the lineup, where Big Sister is the ace forward. The closer the game gets though, the more nervous he becomes. Can he make his family proud with their long history of playing hockey? He must rely on the wisdom of Grandpa, Dad, Big Sister, and the Secwepemc cultural values they impart. “Play hard, be fierce, but more importantly, play because you love it.”

Hockey with Dad is the highly anticipated follow-up to Willie Sellars’ award-winning Dipnetting with Dad. In his second book, Sellars continues the adventures of Little Brother as he grows and learns about the importance of hockey to his Secwepemc community. Dynamic illustrations by St. John’s, Mi’kmaq artist Nelson White bring the action to life.
