Horn Book Review

In a bouncy rhyming text, a new youth soccer team bombards their patient coach with questions and concerns, "Who's in? What now? Which side? / We chase the ball. We all... / collide." Digitally created cartoon illustrations display the season's satisfying progression, from bumbling little kids running the wrong way with bonked noses and loose shorts to a team of passing, kicking, scoring soccer players.
