Overview

BONUS: Live link to Audio interviews with Sounders FC goalkeeper Michael Gspurning and midflelder Mauro Rosales on title page the ebook.
Soccer Dreams is an inspiring sports story for young soccer player and fans. It weaves together a fictional tale about a boy from Kenya who moves to Seattle and helps his soccer coach build a winning team, with real-life strategy and teamwork tips from the current MLS Seattle Sounders FC. The book includes profiles and full-color photographs of the Sounders FC players, along with black-and-white illustrations of the story.
Sample of Sounders FC tips: - From the coach: "Give every player a strength that sets them apart from the rest of the group. Everyone has something in the game they enjoy. Find that player's strength, and build around it."
- From the goalkeeper: "You're going to make mistakes, and those mistakes will cause goals. How do you bounce back from that? You have to have confidence in your own ability that you're going to save a lot more than you're going to give up."

Editorial Reviews

Tim Murray
Rarely in the history of the beautiful game does a perfect soccer player come along. But as Todo, Coach Dan, and the rest of the players in Soccer Dreams learn, if we work together and make the most of the varied talents and strengths that each of us brings to the pitch, we can come close to creating the perfect team.
Allegra Abramo
Young readers can immerse themselves in the story of Todo, a 10-year-old boy who emigrates from Kenya to Seattle, where playing on a youth soccer team opens the door to friendship and acceptance. Interspersed throughout this fictional story are photos and profiles of Seattle Sounders FC team members from all over the world who have made their own childhood soccer dreams come true.
