Flying High by Julian Edelman


Originally published in: 2016

What it’s about: A football loving squirrel learns how much hard work it takes to play the game.

What made me pick it up: I have a coworker who is obsessed with the Patriots and Edelman (the Patriots wide receiver) and when he started publicizing this book she contacted everyone she knew in the Boston area to acquire a copy. Then, thankfully, she shared it with me.

My favorite things: This a fun book with cute illustrations all involving animals. It throws a lot of shade at other NFL teams, and has plenty of in-jokes for Patriots fans. But it also has a great work hard to achieve your goals theme.

Who it’s great for: Kids who love football. Patriots fans. Anyone who has ever been told they can’t, especially if they later proved the haters wrong.

Erica’s rating: four-shells
