The Best Dallas Cowboy Children’s Books
by Ricci DeLoriea | on
The Best Dallas Cowboy childrens books in my opinion are “If I were a Dallas Cowboy” by JosephC. D’Andrea and “Things Change” by Troy Aikman.
Somehow I received a copy of “If I were a Dallas Cowboy” before my son was born. This book is a neat book. You put your childs picture in the book. They are the star as they beat the much hated rival Redskins and become the hero in the book. Your child’s picture is visible on every page, they are the center piece of the story.
My son Eric was born on the Tue. before Thanksgiving and we brought him home on Thanksgiving day 1996. This is the first book I read to him, and yes I put his infant picture in the book, of course I changed the picture as he got older. I have a picture of me in my Cowboy Aikman jersey reading to him on that day. Ironically Dallas played the Redskins on that particular Thanksgiving day and we won 21-10.
Funny thing though today he is not much of a football fan. That honor goes to my youngest son Jacob, and yes I read this book to him as well. It is a fun book and I’m sure they liked being the hero evertime we read this book. It still makes me smile when I see it. If you are a Dallas Cowboy fan and like to read with your kids, get this book. I’m not sure if they are still printing it, but you can still get copies…..just click on the book picture below.
The Best Dallas Cowboy Childrens books listed in this post are our personal favorites.
Another book I really liked to read to them as they got a little older and started participating in T-ball, basketball, and soccer was “Things Change” by Troy Aikman. Sure the point of reference is different they didn’t see him play or appreciate how great he was, but the core messages about being a good sport, doing your best, respecting your parents, adapting to and overcoming certain obstacles in life are good life lessons and we all enjoyed the book. Things that a dad should want to read and share with his children, boys or girls!
We got to go to Dallas last year, my sons were able to meet some former players and Preston Pearson let them wear his superbowl rings…..We also played around on the field throwing balls and imagining for a few moments what it might be like as a Dallas Cowboy! We had a blast with Star Sports Tours.
