Terrific Tales Tuesday: Soccer Books for Kids (a List of 31 Picture Books)
"Terrific Tales Tuesday" is a regular blog post feature that includes either book lists (usually based on a theme), or a book with an activity suggestion.
My son picked up a new sport this summer: SOCCER! We had a lot of fun watching games, practicing skills, and kicking the ball around the backyard. We also enjoyed having soccer "family fun nights"--pairing the game with books, activities and fun food. Here is a list of picture books for such an occasion, a list that any young soccer fan would enjoy! (Click on titles for more information.)
