Chidren's Soccer Books
Soccer is a fall sport for both school age children around here. It’s very common to see younger siblings sitting on the sidelines, watching with great interest as their older brothers and sisters play the sport. As the seasons change and it gets darker sooner kids will have a little more time indoors. Here are three children’s books from Candlewick Press on soccer that should help occupy that time.

Maisy is back for a rousing game of soccer with her friends! In this fun read-aloud from the Maisy First Experiences series, the spunky mouse gets ready to play her first game of soccer with friends. They divide into teams, and then it’s time to play. No matter who wins, it’s fun for everybody. Great for young soccer players who can’t wait to get on the field!

I have 3 soccer fans in my house. From the looks of it, these would fit perfectly into their age ranges as well.
