Today is the day that Ben and Lucy have been waiting for-the ice is finally frozen and they can play pond hockey! The kids put sticks on their shoulders for the traditional trek to the rink where they meet their friends for a game of two-on-two. Playing until the sun sets Lucy and Ben zoom and twirl across the ice passing the puck and scoring goals. This is sports the way nature intended: full of fun friends and the great outdoors.
Clever rhymes and charming illustrations bring to life the warm traditions of a day spent at the rink-a perfect introduction to pond hockey for young fans!
