Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

This fast-paced, informative book is perfect for those of ANY age who want to learn about the world's most popular sport: soccer. Christopher presents a full history of the sport, including its introduction in the U.S. in 1894. Narrator Joshua Swanson’s enthusiasm keeps listeners engaged even amid the book’s many facts and figures. Further, he perfectly conveys the game's highly charged excitement, fever-pitched triumphs, and extreme disappointments. In addition to many interesting historical tidbits, there's an excellent overview of women's soccer. Learning that there are one billion soccer fans worldwide puts the sport into startling perspective despite the overall indifference of the U.S. to the sport.
