I am a teacher of 7 year olds and have found that this is the most wonderful book for giving children new views on the world, exploring the idea of timezones and on a topic (soccer) which is popular world over. The children found it so exciting to believe that while they were sleeping, somewhere else in the world, someone is practising soccer against a wall in a town or on the beach, for example. It gives them a greater perspective of the world we live in, as you can see so many different cultures, countries and races represented. It's more a book for discussion with your child or to teach from, rather than a book for a young child to read alone. I highly recommend it!
