My dear friend, Andrea, is a mom, soccer coach and author. She just published this book and loaned me a copy to read. I flew through the book in a single afternoon – and loved it.
It has all the right messages for our daughters: girl power, team spirit, kindness, honesty — all wrapped up in a fun story about a girls’ soccer team. (Plus a couple of subtle notes about badly-behaved sports parents!! We all know they’re out there.)
I’d say the best ages for this book are 8-12. If any of the soccer terms in the story are unfamiliar to your daughter, she can look up the meaning in the glossary at the back. If “Soccer Sisters” isn’t carried in your local bookstore, it’s available on Amazon.com . Enjoy!
