9781585361304: K is for Kick: A Soccer Alphabet (Sports Alphabet)

Author Brad Herzog brings his well-received prose and soccer knowledge together with Melanie Rose's charming and realistic illustrations to detail every facet of the game. Each letter has a simple rhyme for young readers: "J is for the Jerseys that soccer players wear. But often in the World Cup, opponents tend to share. In a gesture of respect after a game ends, They simply swap their jerseys as if they are old friends." For older readers the expository text gives specific details about goaltending, referees, the World Cup, and many other aspects. K is for Kick follows the wildly popular Z is for Zamboni.

About the Author:

Brad Herzog's first job as a newspaper sports reporter allowed him to travel with the Cornell University football team. He has been writing about the game ever since. A past Grand Gold Medal Award winner from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, Brad has written more than a dozen fiction and nonfiction children's books. Brad lives with his family on California's Monterey Peninsula.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4-This alphabet book is loaded with informational tidbits about the sport but its audience is unclear. Young children may enjoy searching for specific letters within verses, such as, "-B is for brave boys and girls/who try with all their might/to boot that bouncing soccer ball/colored black and white," but they are not likely to understand, "C is for clubs everywhere/that give the fans their fill,/like Italy's A.C. Milan/and Santos in Brazil." Difficult letters Q, U, V, Y, and Z are imaginatively represented, but X merely "marks the spot." On each page or spread, letters are shown in both upper- and lowercase. The alphabetical organization predominates; otherwise, there is no apparent arrangementof the material. Older readers may peruse the substantial sidebars, which are set in a rather small font. They flesh out information presented in the related verse and/or provide additional associations with the letter. Acrylic paintings depict action-filled scenes and zoom in to show the emotion on the players' faces, but do little to support the many historical facts. A supplemental purchase.
