"Since he was just a little boy, Smitty has dreamed of playing football for the Pop Warner Wildcats. He finally convinces his mom that he belongs on the football field, and he wants to make her proud. But Smitty's love for the game soon gets in his way. He is all football, all the time, and there's no time left for his schoolwork. When his favorite teacher, Ms. Hart, gets his mother on the line, they mean business. Smitty may not like it, but he has to decide how much football really means to him. And he'd better do it quick! Based on NFL veteran Pro Bowl player Wade Smith's own experiences growing up, Smitty Hits the Play Books sends a clear message to young athletes about the importance of staying focused at school, no matter how talented they are on the field." -- Book jacket.
