Soccer: Facts and Stats + the World Cup + Superstars and Games with Pop-Ups

by Robert Crowther

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
On the first double-page spread of this exhaustive small-scale encyclopedia of the world's most popular game, you can find interesting facts and photographs about 16 of the world's greatest soccer players on miniature punch out trading cards. Also included are a punch-out soccer uniform shirt to be customized by the reader, the history of soccer and the description of the soccer world organization, The International Federation of Football. The third double-page spread covers the rules of the game, the duties of the referee and the goalkeeper, the moves of the players, such as passing, dribbling, shooting, heading, tackling and controlling the ball, and common injuries. On the other three pages there are four different games involving the use of a tiny plastic soccer ball, many, many punch out pieces—over 100 in one game alone—a straw, a die and counters. For every tiny piece of paper that is to be punched out there is a tiny folder in which it can be stored. There are flaps, wheels, pull tabs, little booklets and¾in the center fold¾the pop-up game of air soccer played with the straw, the tiny soccer ball and rows of very small paper hockey players manipulated with pull tabs. 2001, Candlewick Press, $17.99. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich AGES: 8 9 10 11 12 13
