Top of the League

The book has everything young football fans will love. Impactful illustrations support clever tactics, legendary matches are shared with fun trivia to take kids from beginners to experts. I love the rules of the game at the back; finally I think I understand the off side rule! The book isn’t just for boys either; there is a whole section on women’s football. I had no idea women were playing matches as far back as 1895.

50 Football things you should know about

Discover how football spread across the globe as the most popular sport. Meet the stars in each country, see how mascots play their part, who ended up in major films and how technology has influenced the game.  This book is packed with interesting bit sized snippets carefully presented to capture the eye of  kids even if they are not prolific readers.  I really appreciated the words in bold all being in a glossary at the end. Very handy for a non expert!

Both these books you can just pick up and put down, read in bite sized chunks and revisit many times over. It didn’t take my football mad son to get his head in them, and that isn’t something I see too often.
