Rugby read #1 – Bootsie: You’re 8 by Mike James

With only 5 weeks to go until the Rugby World Cup kicks off, we want to share some rugby reads with you.  If you love rugby and reading, then these books are for you.  This week’s Rugby Read is Bootsie: You’re 8 by Mike James.

Bootsie is a boy who loves rugby.  He hasn’t always been called Bootsie, but his team mates used this nickname for him when he first started playing rugby and it just stuck (even his parents call him Bootsie).  He is desperate for his team, the South’s Bulldogs, to get into the finals of the under 11 rugby union competition.  But first they have to face the Eastern Warriors, the South East Cats, then the dreaded Western Rebels.

The Bootsie books are perfect for anyone who’s rugby mad.  You follow Bootsie and his team through each of their games and experience the excitement and nerves on their journey to the finals.  As well as a great story, you’ll learn all about the positions, rules of the game and strategies.  There are also 3 other Bootsie books that you can check out – Number 2, The Schoolboy and The King.    Recommended for 7+
