The Lovereading4Kids comment
Uplifting and inspiring, this beautifully written and illustrated book reminds us of the joys and saving grace of friendship and sport. Set in South Africa, this book is a gift for football fans and all families around the world. The above words are from Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the book is published to coincide with the World Cup in South Africa. In war, in peace and no matter where in the world people play football and it’s a pastime that makes both young and old feel that they belong.
Goal! by Mina Javaherbin
This is a lyrical and beautifully illustrated story about the unifying power of football. When Ajani and his friends play football, they forget the poverty and hardship of life in their small South African town. When they play they feel strong. When they run they are not afraid...But overshadowing their games are the bullies who terrorize the streets they play in. Ajani will have to think fast in order to protect his most treasured possession, his brand-new football...This title is to be published in the lead-up to the 2010 World Cup when football fever is at its peak. Stunning pictures and powerful words make a story that is as universal as it is particular.
