Sean Wants to Be Messi is an inspiring, relatable story for any young sports fan. It is funny, thoughtful and a great way to open kid friendly discussions on getting frustrated, trying again, work ethic, believing in yourself and having a dream.
You don't have to be a soccer fan to enjoy this book! My son and I had no idea who Leo Messi was until we read this book together, so we discovered something new which is what all good books should do!

I heard my son reading it aloud and was startled to hear a manipulative, angry child getting what he wanted; and parents speaking harshly and using bribery. Also, in this book, two boys angrily fight about who's the best soccer player. What about teaching our children to respect differences of opinion and to be able to discuss differences with control and integrity. We can be civil and kind without having to agree on everything.
I want good examples for my children, definitely not this. I know your child may like the Messi name and Barcelona colors, but don't spend your money on this.
(I disappointed on another level. This is a self-published book. That is an awesome feat! I have self published a children's book, and I know the work that goes into it. I wish I could wholeheartedly support this author...)
Sean wouldn't go the camp his Mother signed him up for and was terribly bratty and spoiled. The mother resorts to bribery to get Sean to play and then he winds up scoring goals through he was no help to his team whatsoever.
Terrible example of how to behave as a team member and terrible example of rewarding spoiled bratty behaivor. Would not recommend.
