Baby loves soccer, the black and white ball
The field and the goal posts—she loves it all!
Baby is at her first soccer game! From watching the players run downfield, to cheering for a goal, baby loves it all. So when the game is over and the day is done, baby can’t wait to have more fun—by learning how to play soccer, too!
What I loved: This board book is full of bright and colorful illustrations that capture Baby's joys and all the fun of soccer games. From the food to the crowd doing the wave to the cool moves happening on the field, this book describes all the things to love about soccer. The ending encourages children to try out the things they enjoy for themselves, as Baby plays soccer herself too. I particularly appreciate that the story is told from the perspective of a young girl and shows a female soccer team as well as diverse players and spectators.
The rhyming, brief text is perfect for older infants and toddlers, who will appreciate the lyrical text when read aloud and quickly turning pages. The font is clear and easy to read on each page. The small board book format is perfect for little fingers who are beginning to turn the pages on their own.
Final verdict: Altogether, this board book is a win for young readers who will delight in the joy of soccer, the brightly colored illustrations, and rhyming text. Recommend for older infants and toddlers.
