This book will give your boy a better understand of football (and math!)

See how “geometry, statistics, and other math skills” play a big part in football.

The answers are given right after the problems which is good for some kids but not great if you want your boy to practice his math. This issue is easily solved by simply covering the answers with post-its if you would like him to do the math along with reading the book.

It also includes history and trivia. Ages 8 – 10
