The ref blows the whistle, the striker approaches for kickoff, feet fly-a soccer match is underway! With a fun mix of Sports Illustrated action photography, simple text, a full glossary of terms, and awesome graphics, My First Book of Soccer introduces readers to the world's favorite game. Kids (and probably a few adults, too) will learn how the clock counts "up" and never stops, what an offside means, what's up with those yellow cards, and how kicks become a gooooaaaallll!
Illustrated "rookie" characters appears on every page, guiding the reader moment by moment, and helping to make My First Book of Soccer an ideal shared reading experience between parents and their little rookies before, during, and after the game.
My First Book of Soccer is a funny, fact-filled picture about the rules of soccer. It explains different types of players and plays using real photographs and funny comments that keep the book enjoyable. This would be useful to beginning soccer players from preschool to fourth or fifth grade. Even bigger kids would enjoy this and it makes understanding the game very easy. Great way to teach about a sport!
