Soccer Season Madness

Fitted with new cleats, shin guards, yellow ribbons, and a shiny new ball the Little Reader set out for her first soccer game.  Like a swarm of bees they chased the ball, kicked it into the wrong goal, and intermittently paused to chat about their accessories.  It was quite possibly the most precious thing I’ve ever watched… Oh the wonderful adventures of a soccer mom.
And like always, every event becomes a readable moment.

Sergio Saves the Game
By Rodriguez, Edel



Sergio the penguin is a super star soccer player, but only in his dreams. This persistent penguin thinks maybe a little more practice will help, and in the end it’s up to him to save the championship game.  Not sure why, but this read did not keep the attention.

An upbeat Mikey is super-competitive and captain of the Hot Diggedy Diner soccer team.  His teammates though, are easily distracted by anthill investigations and turning themselves into whirlybirds. A great contrast of the fast paced action to the easy-going action of soccer, showing there are many ways for kids to play and enjoy the game.
