The Lovereading4Kids comment

Nine-year-old Megan Fawcett loves football and is desperate to be on her school team. She tries everything to get the coach to notice her, even wearing a tiara! But nothing works… Then she has a brainwave – she’ll set up her own team. An all-girls team! Now all she needs is a pitch, a coach … and ten other players. Girls FC is a series that has filled a gap brilliantly for the ever increasing numbers of football mad girls aged 7-11. This is the first in the series.

A message from Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson
‘This book makes football a fun activity that isn’t just for boys and I hope reading the series will encourage more girls to get involved in sport from an early age’

Girls FC Do Goalkeepers Wear Tiaras? by Helena Pielichaty

Girls United is the best team for football and friendship. Nine-year-old Megan Fawcett loves football, and is desperate to be on her school team. That means getting her school football coach to notice her. She tries everything, from volleying to dribbling to even wearing a tiara, but without success. Then she has a brainwave - she'll set up her own team. An all-girls team! Now all she needs is a pitch, a coach...and ten other players.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
