The fourth book in the fan-favorite Rookie Book series, Sports Illustrated Kids explains the most popular sport in the world to its youngest fans. The ref blows the whistle, the striker approaches for kickoff, feet fly—a soccer match is underway! With a fun mix of Sports Illustrated action photography, simple text, a full glossary of terms, and awesome graphics, My First Book of Soccer introduces readers to the world's favorite game. Readers will learn how the clock counts "up" and never stops, what an offside means, what's up with those yellow cards, and how kicks become a goal! Illustrated "rookie" characters appear on every page, guiding the reader moment by moment, and helping to make My First Book of Soccer an ideal shared reading experience between parents and their little rookies before, during, and after the game.
