This book is very interesting and educational. It tells you a lot about soccer all over the world, how to play soccer, and what some soccer moves are called. The best part of the book talks about children in many different countries and how they play soccer even if they don’t have a real soccer ball. In colorful square blocks on the pages there are soccer facts about each country.

I think this book will help children who have so much to see other children in poorer parts of the world having fun playing soccer even though they don’t have a nice soccer ball, a large soccer field, or uniforms. They just love the sport!

This book has very nice photographs and great facts about soccer in different parts of the world.
