“Vini! Come! The field calls!” cries a girl as she and her younger brother rouse their community—family, friends, and the local fruit vendor—for a pickup soccer (futbol) game. Boys and girls, young and old, players and spectators come running—bearing balls, shoes, goals, and a love of the sport.
A great story of friendship and youthful spirit, this is the perfect book to read with your little soccer fan. It also includes words in Creole, making it a dual learning opportunity.
I read this as an ARC through Netgalley.com. The expected release date is March 6th, 2018.
