Home-Field Advantage

Home-Field Advantage By Justin Tuck
Grades K-3

New York Giants superstar Justin Tuck has written a funny book for kids about family love and sibling torment. This first person narrative tells about how he grew up to be so tough. He says it's in part due to battling with his twin sisters Tiffany and Christale and goes on to share what happened the day they gave him a reverse mohawk haircut. The illustrations by Leonardo Rodriguez are bright and hysterical. I love how they are almost like caricatures and show exaggerated expressions on Justin's face. In the back of the book there is a short biography for Justin and also some information regarding the charity that he and his wife, Lauran started called R.U.S.H. for Literacy which encourages children to Read, Understand, Succeed and Hope. This is a great pick for the football lover in your life or for any children that come from big families and can relate to the trouble big sisters and brothers can wreak in your life.
