I have received a free e-copy of the book “Tryouts for Ben” by Jean Cogdell for son1 to review.
School summer holidays and Ben is planning to spend them on the swings and playing video games. But his parents have other ideas and each day take him to try a new sport. So he tries football, ice hockey, baseball, soccer and basketball, all with some disaster. However when he starts thinking about it, maybe they won’t be so bad with some practice. Perhaps the summer won’t be as bad as expected.
Tryouts For Ben is available on Amazon, currently priced at £5.84 in paperback or £1.99 on Kindle. Son1 enjoyed this book, which at just 57 pages, is also great for those children at early reader stage. The story is aimed at American children, but it crosses the pond well. The only word we had to look up the meaning for was bleachers.
