A portion of the book’s proceeds are donated to the Hugo Bustamante AYSO Playership Fund, a national scholarship program to help ensure that no child misses the chance to play AYSO Soccer. Donations cover the cost of registration and a uniform for a child in need. AYSO Soccer is a family experience and an opportunity to create memories for a lifetime. The positive environment of AYSO is the right place for kids to learn soccer, but it’s also where they learn important life lessons, social skills and get active.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“These books address a largely unfilled niche: short, highly readable biographies of contemporary soccer stars. The texts are printed over and around voluminous, richly printed photographs and include many pages of scoring statistics and league standings, awards, even a QR code to direct readers to a video of Zlatan’s 40-yard bicycle-kick goal in a 2012 match against England. Frequent references to great players of the past—Maradona, Pelé, Cruyff, Eusebio—lend the books a welcome historical context.... These entries are excellent….”
School Library Journal

“The U.S. book—with profiles of coaches from Thomas Cahill to Jurgen Klinsmann and players from Joe Gaetjens to Landon Donovan—serves as a fine source for anyone of any age on American soccer history. (All of the books are also stat resources.)
Although meant for young readers, there’s nothing childish about the presentation in "Legends Series." The graphics—such as the Gold Cup opponents map in U.S. Men’s Team—are colorful yet clear and informative. They're simply beautiful books that tell fascinating stories.”
SoccerAmerica Youth Soccer Insider

“High quality and high attention to even the smallest of details. Clever use of formatting and photographs hook the reader immediately! I can't wait to get these on the shelves of my library - they are going to just fly right off.”
—Gayle Byrne, Children’s Librarian, Killingworth Library

"These books are a terrific soccer resource for kids! They combine the best of world soccer along with history, geography and a glimpse at what it’s like growing up as a young soccer player in another country. Soccer is truly a global language and these books help American kids speak it fluently. What a great opportunity for young soccer players to learn about their heroes and the legendary clubs of the world. These books are engaging and fun!"
—Lynn Berling-Manuel, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO)

"Readers will be captivated by the stunning photography."
—Michael Terborg, Librarian, Prince George's County Public Schools
