For the love of soccer by Pele.
Let’s face it. I am no sport buff. It simply was never introduced to it by my father or uncles (though most played soccer), never had any brothers or close male cousins, no boyfriends or husband nudged me to watch with them, no random motivation to watch, play or learn any game ever emerged (though I did make my first born learn softball and basketball) and never had girlfriends who did any sport other than swim and maybe swing a racket (badminton or tennis). But I borrowed a couple picture books on sports and I am in love with Pele, the book written by Pele that is. This book is a well-illustrated and perfectly narrated story about Pele a little boy who loved soccer and grew up to be a three-time world cup champion. It shows the importance of practice, team work, effort and sportsmanship. The words were compelling, but the illustrator brought the words to live. The color and size of the font, the realistic imagery, everything…
