How Soccer Explains the World

Kick,
Striker Boy.
Kick the Balls.
Shoot to Win
Glory.
Dream On,
Young Blood.
The World is a Ball.

 

Two of our family obsessions are soccer and books, so I’ve been meaning to try a soccer book spine poem for a while. I think they’re a fun reminder that one can love both sports and books.

      Seriously. Given the number of soccer-mad boys and girls, there should be many more soccer books. My oldest is constantly begging for them, which is why we have so many. They can be surprisingly hard to find! I’m a huge believer in kids reading books they love.
