The Lovereading4Kids comment

The joy that football brings around the world and its very special ability to link communities is celebrated in the beautiful photographic illustrations to this book. Wherever there is a ball – of any kind from simple and home-made to shop manufactured, someone will love to play football with it. And, just as quality of the ball doesn’t matter, neither does the surface of the ground the game is played on. Across beaches, fields, streets or anywhere else where the ground is mostly flat, football joins people around the world together.

Translated by Sean Taylor.
