If you have a soccer crazed girl, as I do, I wanted to share some books that I have recently enjoyed with my daughter. To purchase any of the books simply click on the picture which will take you to Amazon. A portion of each purchase will go back to this blog at no cost to you.
Despite the fact that these books are a little young for my daughter now, she still devours every one. They are written by Alex Morgan and profile a team of soccer girls. Having been on a team for so long, my daughter can relate to so many of the stories and relishes how the girls handle the interactions. She has also taken some good soccer pointers from the stories - an added bonus.
My daughter read this one in one day. She is a huge fan of Alex Morgan so this book was right up her alley. A biography of her career in soccer, it is full of inspiration and advice for girls. While my daughter really enjoyed the book, she did wish that Alex had bigger challenges to overcome. She felt that Alex, while an incredibly hard working and dedicated soccer player, also had a bit of a charmed life.
