Starting Soccer is an information-packed book that is perfect for children interested in football. Colourful illustrations and photographs, and simple, clear text, take readers through the basic footy skills, such as kicking and heading a ball, dribbling, passing, tackling, goal-keeping, scoring and eventually, match play.
Educationally, Starting Soccer can also be used for home learning, to support Key Stage One English reading skills. The book is a great way of encouraging youngsters who are interested in football to read different kinds of books, such as information books, therefore increasing their interest in reading generally. It may also help reluctant readers, by attracting them to the subject matter, rather than the activity of reading.
