Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In picture-book format, Gibbons provides the basic facts about two popular sports. Using short, clear sentences, she defines terms, explains the rules, and describes scoring. One line in each book mentions the equipment necessary for each game, but the information is well augmented by clearly labeled, colorful drawings showing additional gear, such as shin guards for soccer players or protective covering for the baseball catcher. Both books contain diagrams of the game fields. However, the words selected for the brief glossaries seem arbitrary; for example, "cleat" is defined in Soccer, but not in Baseball. These informative books will be enjoyed by new players or spectators of older siblings' events.

Good book for 4 years old and younger.

The bold pictures make the book enjoyable for the boys to "read" to themselves sometimes, too.

My two love this book. It breaks the principles of the game into simplistic steps and basic explanations which are perfect for preschoolers. The bold pictures make the book enjoyable for the boys to "read" to themselves sometimes, too.

I was very disappointed when I first looked at this book. It is very basic and hardly seems to provide enough information to be worthwhile. But when I read it to my four year old it solicited a string of questions. So it probably has the about the right amount of information for a very basic introduction to soccer, which is all the intended audience is ready for. Overall I would recommend it.

My daughter is 7 and just starting soccer. This book was great to go over the positions and terms. There isn't a lot of discussion about the rules of the game, but it is appropriate for 1st time players.

Great illustrations, and very informative as to the game of soccer for young children...a little over the head of my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, but still useful even to her.

We bought this book for our grandson's 5th birthday. He plays soccer so already knows the game, but the book included things he didn't know and seemed to have just the right amount of information to be interesting to him. Great book!
