One big round world, one small round ball. Right now, more children than you can possibly imagine are playing soccer." Author/artist Tim Vyner takes young readers on a trip around the world to meet a children in many coutries who are all playing soccer at the very same time. Joe is practicing against a school wall at 1 p.m. in England, while Tico is kicking a ball on the beach in Rio de Janeiro, where it is 10 a.m. in the morning. In New York City it's even earlier, only 8, but Lucy is dribbling her way to school, while it is 3 p.m. in Lebanon as Sami scrimmages with his friends. Even though they are miles and nations apart, these and other children are playing soccer together in a book that celebrates love of sport, and underscores how dreams of World Cup glory-and certainly so much more--are shared by children around the world.
