READ ALL ABOUT SOCCER – New Book Released for Curious 5 – 8-Year-olds

Mill Valley, CA. –  Soccer is definitely life around the world. Not a Saturday goes by without pick-up soccer games or organized soccer practices and tournaments. Soccer fields are filled with players and referees. Coaches are along a sideline and the opposite side is strewn with blankets, snacks, siblings, parents and grandparents in sports chairs, friends, and dogs.

READ ALL ABOUT SOCCER, a 32-page picture book for 5 – 8-year-olds, is perfect for the curious young fan and players of all ages. What’s a “clean sheet”? Who jumped the highest to head the ball? What team’s mascot is a live billy goat? What were the first soccer balls made of? With vivid images, this fact-filled book covers soccer positions, moves, and equipment, plus a fascinating look at crazy facts about the sport’s history, teams, stadiums, mascots, fans, and more.

Just released by Pebble Books, an imprint of Capstone Publications, children’s author Colette Weil Parrinello brings an even hand in presenting women and men in soccer and players who have stood out in the sport. Girls and boys want to see themselves in today’s soccer life and READ ALL ABOUT SOCCER provides a balanced, diverse presentation of soccer life today.
