Let's Play soccer in the Usa!
(Let's play football everywhere else!)
I got a kick out of interviewing coaches, observing LIVE soccer games, and reading EVERYTHING I could get my hands on about this fun and fast-moving game to become a soccer expert!
Writing this reader was an amazing experience, too. I was able to craft a narrative non-fiction story to include the facts that I learned about the game, teach readers about soccer--and hopefully, encourage some to try and play the game.
The characters in the book are named after family members (Erik and Beth) and friends of mine.
