Synopsis

Soccer World: Spain Explore the World Through Soccer by Ethan Zohn, David Rosenberg

Journeying to the country that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup, this book explores the culture of Spain through the world's most popular sport: soccer. From watching an amazing game between world class rivals Real Madrid and FC Barcelona to exploring island volcanic landscapes and witnessing the many fiestas that are celebrated there, readers join professional soccer player Ethan Zohn on the experience of a lifetime. Activities generated from each chapter include learning a phrase in each of the different languages that Spain recognizes, making a sand-drip sand castle to understand the concept of surface tension, and creating a time capsule unique to a family's culture and era. Readers will also have the opportunity to research a real project in Spain through which they can give back and make a difference in this fascinating country.

Reviews

Review for Books4Spain by Zacarias Flores Watson, aged 6... I really liked this book because I learned lots about Spain, where I live, and about football, and about Spanish too. The bit about how you say what your name is in all the different languages of Spain was great. I also liked the maps. I want to go to Donana park to see a lynx and I want to make the volcano. Some observations by his mum: He's a bit young to read it all on his own (it's for ages 7-10), so we dipped in and out. It's about a professional footballer who goes to Barcelona to visit his friend Javier, a mad-keen FC Barcelona fan. They visit famous sites in the city, and learn about food, culture, fiestas, history, nature
