Sam is a little boy who loves to play football. He practices almost every day at home and twice a week at the local football club. He dreams of one day becoming a famous football player. And he has a pair of socks that he wears for every game—his lucky socks, which are almost like magic. He always has a good game when he wears them.
Then one day Sam spots a hole in one of his magic socks. He doesn’t want to tell his mum because she might take them away or throw them out; then how will he ever be a good player again? If his mum buys him new socks, he’ll have to find another way to believe in himself and know that he can be a good football player no matter what socks he is wearing.
In this children’s story, a boy who loves football runs into a problem with his lucky magic socks and discovers the value of believing in himself.
