This is the first book in a new series featuring Rone, the Magic Soccer Ball. Aimed at children ages 4-16, the series describes the beautiful game of soccer with attractive and detailed illustrations and text. The first book introduces Rone, who names of each part of the soccer field (including many things that novice coaches and parents may not know). The illustrations emphasize points that children would not understand by only reading rules or purely instructional books. The Magic Soccer Ball is destined to become a series of books that will teach soccer to our youngest players. The author hopes that these young children will come to understand and enjoy soccer like the children in his native country of Brazil. In the long run, the author wants to see the USA become a soccer nation in par with or better than Brazil.
Illustrated by Emilio Carrillo and Maria Fernanda Sambuceti
