Coach Smith has all kinds of things to tell them about. He shows them how to warm up in order to get their "muscles ready," he shows them how to stretch to "keep [them] from getting hurt" and then shows them some basic soccer skills. His instruction includes showing them how to properly pass the ball, telling them who they should pass to in a game, showing them how to dribble by using cones and having them try to kick some goals. He also says that "it's more important to try your best and have fun." After the instruction, Eric and his new teammates play a game. Being a team player and learning to play soccer was going to be fun!
This is an excellent introduction not only to the game of soccer, but also to reading. This is a level one, "Beginning to read" book. There are full color photographs illustrating the game and its needed skills, equipment and action shots of a game in action. This book, along with some soccer equipment, would be a perfect gift for a youngster interested in the sport. It won't hurt to nudge him or her into a bit of reading at the same time!
