Kirkus Reviews

"The excitement of a family’s trip to a football game segues into a Goodnight Moon–like list of goodnights, ending with the young boy in bed, asleep, football tucked under his arm. . . .Much is evident from the small details: the family’s love for one another, the good sportsmanship on display on the field and the boy’s passion for football. . . .At least one fan’s dreams will be of the gridiron." - Kirkus Reviews

"Goodnight Football is a wonderful bedtime story for young boys, but some girls will love this story as well. Goodnight Football makes the perfect gift for young football fans." - Kid Lit Reviews blog

School Library Journal - Jenna Boles, Greene County Public Library, Beavercreek, OH

"Simple rhyming text and bright, full-bleed, autumn-hued illustrations highlight the excitement of concession stands, the band, and the gridiron heroics of one little boy’s favorite team. . . .will likely appeal to young nonfiction readers and sports fans who aren’t ready for the typical fact-filled football books for older readers. The diversity present in the fans and on the football team is an accurate reflection of real sports and makes this a welcome addition to other fall picture books." - School Library Journal

Booklist Online - Carolyn Phelan

"In the illustrations, there’s racial diversity on and off the field as a community comes together to enjoy their favorite fall sport. Given the short supply of football-themed picture books accessible to young children, this cheerful bedtime book looks like a winner." - Booklist Online

September 9, 2014 - 'CP' Chris Peppas, Milwaukee Sports Examiner

"If you are looking for a book to introduce the sport of football to your little ones, your search is over. Goodnight Football will send your kids into dreamland thinking of football and precious little else. . . .Goodnight Football will make a great stocking stuffer for the holidays but you’re going to need a really big sock." -
