Mattie is daydreaming on Sunday morning while mom and sisters are out. Stumbling upon dad watching his favorite team play football, Mattie works hard to get him to spend the day just the way she likes it- Girl-Style!  But she learns that Daddy's sport isn't as boring as she thought, and in the end, charms dad into playing together in ways that they both can enjoy.  As usual, Mattie steals some of Dad's time, and his heart.

      "My daughters' favorite part was Mattie sticking her toe in Daddy's ear to get his attention!    It's a fun tale and a good reminder to Dads to really play with their kids, and indeed when you're having so much fun you forget about the game on TV, is when some great memories are made, in addition to sharing your favorite sporting events with them!"                                        Brooks- Dad

      "What a great book!  This story will resonate with fathers because it so accurately depicts the tension between family and personal wants.  A must read for fathers and children alike!"                                                                           Carter- Youth Minister, Father

      "Fun to read with some complex storylines woven into the rhyming rhythm.  I loved it."             Amy- Elementary School Librarian

       "​What's better than football?  Easy!  Tea parties, nails, dressing up and a matrimony made in the living room.  Daddies love their football, but they love their daughters more and this is such a sweet story to celebrate that special relationship that keeps dads grounded in what really matters.  Three cheers for Daddy's Football Game."                                                       Sara- Mom, Elementary School Counselor
