What a wonderful and vividly illustrated picture book for kids of all ages. Technically, it is a book about soccer. But it is so much more because there are so many important lessons contained within the book.
"Bending a Soccer Ball" is about a group of kids who love to play soccer. One day, Amanda shows up for the game. She looks different and wears old clothes. At first, no one wants to approach her. But as they get to know her, things really start to change. You see, Amanda unexpectedly knows a lot about soccer.
The book will teach young readers many valuable lessons. First, readers will learn that they should never judge people before they get to know them. Second, they shouldn’t assume things about others just because they look a certain way. Lastly, readers will become aware that the nicest and most talented kids sometimes come from the most unlikely backgrounds. What a great book!
