'Picco Puppy Loves Football' is a simply written tale about a puppy who finds things difficult, doesn't give up and who's perseverance is rewarded by success in the end. It is written in a way that small children will be able to understand. There is a suggestion in the introduction that Picco faces specific challenges which make keeping going more difficult for him but these adversities are left vague, allowing the readers to apply the message of the book in all circumstances. The illustrations are clear and uncomplicated, portraying a diverse collection of characters; I think they will appeal to small children - as will the charming story.

Not everyone gets it right the first time and this book is about persevering to get it right- just like Picco, who is not good at playing football and requires to keep on going to succeed.

This is a story about how a little puppy has overcome his fears and achieved his dream.

This is a story about how a little puppy has overcome his fears and achieved his dream. His family and friends support him always. When he feels he has failed, they build him up. They keep telling him to continue to try everything more often until he becomes much better at his running, dribbling, being able to shoot better and get goals and not being able to save goals. A very important issue to learn in life. You can't do everything at once. You have to go slow, practice and improve every day so that you can become a better player. In the end, Picco wins “Player of the Week”.... Read Full Review
