Bildner, Phil

”The Soccer Fence: A Story of Friendship, Hope, and Apartheid in South Africa” av Phil Bildner ”In a country struggling with acceptance, hope can come in many different forms. As a boy, Hector loved playing soccer in his small Johannesburg township. He dreamed of playing on a real pitch with the boys from another part of the city, but apartheid made that impossible. Then, in 1990, Nelson Mandela was released from prison, and apartheid began to crumble. The march toward freedom in South Africa was a slow one, but when the beloved Bafana Bafana national soccer team won the African Cup of Nations, Hector realized that dreams once impossible could now come true. This poignant story of friendship artfully depicts a brief but critical moment in South Africa’s history and the unique role that sports can play in bringing people together.” Förlagsinformation Språk: Engelska Antal sidor: 40 Utg.datum: 2014-03-01 Förlag: Putnam Publishing Group Illustratör: Jesse Joshua Watson ISBN:...

Javaherbin, Mina

”Soccer Star” av Mina Javaherbin ”An inspiring story of a Brazilian boy who dreams of being a soccer star — and the sister who steps in to help his team win a game. When Paulo Marcelo Feliciano becomes a soccer star his mother won’t have to work long hours, and he won’t have to work all day on a fishing boat. For now, Paulo takes care of his little sister Maria (she teaches him reading, he teaches her soccer moves) and walks her to school, stopping to give his teammates cheese buns as they set out to shine people’s shoes or perform for the tourist crowd. At day’s end, it’s time to plan the game, where Givo will bounce, Carlos will kick, and Jose will fly! But when Jose falls on his wrist, will the team finally break the rules and let a girl show her stuff? Set in a country whose resilient soccer stars are often shaped by poverty, this uplifting tale of transcending the expected scores a big win for all.” Förlagsinformation Inbunden Språk: Engelska Antal sidor: 32 Utg.datum: 2014-04-01 Förlag: Candlewick Press (MA) Illustratör: Renato Alarcao ISBN:...

But here, in his own words, he celebrates the kick and thrill of his favorite sport.
