Reviews

These books address a largely unfilled niche: short, highly readable biographies of contemporary soccer stars. The texts are printed over and around voluminous, richly printed photographs and include many pages of scoring statistics and league standings, awards, even a QR code to direct readers to a video of Zlatan's 40-yard bicycle-kick goal in a 2012 match against England. Frequent references to great players of the past--Maradona, Pele, Cruyff, Eusebio--lend the books a welcome historical context.... These entries are excellent.... -- School Library Journal

High quality and high attention to even the smallest of details. Clever use of formatting and photographs hook the reader immediately! I can't wait to get these on the shelves of my library - they are going to just fly right off. --Gayle Byrne, Children's Librarian, Killingworth Library These books are a terrific soccer resource for kids! They combine the best of world soccer along with history, geography and a glimpse at what it's like growing up as a young soccer player in another country. Soccer is truly a global language and these books help American kids speak it fluently. What a great opportunity for young soccer players to learn about their heroes and the legendary clubs of the world. These books are engaging and fun! --Lynn Berling-Manuel, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) Readers will be captivated by the stunning photography. --Michael Terborg, Librarian, Prince George's County Public Schools

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!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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
