Explore These Football Cities Through Literature

Photographer: Hence The Boom

Right now, the world is missing sports. Athletes and fans alike are stuck at home until further notice. But author Marnie Schneider has the perfect quarantine reading for families that miss rooting for their favorite team. Football Freddie and Fumble the Dog is now a seven-book collection that gives tours through cities with NFL teams; Game Day in Dallas is the most recent. The global pandemic gave Schneider the idea to make her books available for free download online. She chats with Bold TV about her books and how she hopes they will help children and families. 

Connecting Sports and History

The story of Football Freddie reflects Schneider’s own experiences with the sport. Her grandfather owned the Philadelphia Eagles, and she traveled with him during her childhood. Her mom is now the first and only female general manager, legal counsel and vice president of a professional football team. Schneider grew up learning the universal language of sports. Now, she believes it’s important that kids learn it, too. Through sports, she includes lessons about tough subjects like handicaps. Kids also will learn about the history of each town in every book. While they read a story about a girl and her dog, they will also learn about famous historical sites.

Anxiously Awaiting Football’s Return

One day, Schneider will have books for all 32 professional football teams. But for now, families can seize the learning opportunity by downloading the available books. During the time of quarantine and virtual school, Football Freddie is a chance for kids to get excited about reading and traveling. And families can get excited for the day when live sports return. Check out the full interview to hear more about the author’s heart behind her work.
