Canada has released several glow-in-the dark coins, including one with a dinosaur.
Canada even has a £1 million dollar coin!
75% of the world’s maple syrup comes from Canada. The maple leaf is even on the country’s flag.
This is important because:
- It treats everyone equally, without discrimination.
- It leads to fairness.
- It stops abuse.
- It gives people rights that cannot easily be taken away.
Without laws people will go crazy and the world will be wrecked. For example, people under 18 years old would start drinking alcohol and they wouldn’t know how to control themselves.
Purple, it curls and winds
And twists and turns.
Dark as night, light as day.
It can be anything:
Evil as a witch,
Kind as a fairy.
Shades like the sunlight,
Shades like the moonlight>

What was your favourite sport at primary school?
Football – all you needed (at most) was a ball and two posts (school jumpers). Everyone could be included, from two players to 40 players.
What value is most important to you?
Fairness – always treat people the way you would like to be treated, no matter who they are. Combined with having a positive attitude, this encourages good things to happen.
What is your favourite hobby?
Skiing – it’s exercising without you realising. It’s always lots of fun with friends and family and there are opportunities to push yourself mentally and physically. Great food too and fantastic views!
How well do you think England will do in the World Cup?
I am aware that the England team have brilliant players. I think they will either come close or win!
Which country in the world would you like to visit?
Japan during the blossom season.
This is a great value because people are free to be themselves and make their own decisions, such as what jobs they would like to work at.
This book follows the life of the current USA women’s football team captain, Alex Morgan, and shows her journey from playground to pitch and school player to professional. I particularly enjoyed this book since I’m a young footballer and I loved seeing how practice makes perfect and hard work pays off.
My favourite characters would be Alex herself for her amazing football skills, her parents for always supporting her and her best friend Abbie, who when times were hard told her to never give up.
I would definitely recommend this book to other people my age, particularly if they love football, because of the teamwork, inspiration and friendship that it teaches throughout. It also reminds you to never give up in the pursuit of your dreams.
This book is different from other books I’ve read because the main footballer is actually a woman. This is good because it offers young girls like me a role model and at the same time boosts confidence that #girlscan. The autobiographical style of the book is also something I haven’t experienced that much before and I liked the fact that you knew the story was true.
I would rate this book five stars because it got me sitting in bed at night, feeling like I was in the crowd cheering Alex and her teammates on. I couldn’t wait to find out what she would achieve next. In fact, it was made all the better by reading it when the actual Women’s World Cup had begun and I was able to watch Alex score five goals against Thailand in the USA’s opening game. I also liked the interactive element at the end of the book – it tested your knowledge and provided further facts about Alex’s career.
Finally, reading this book has given me the urge to read the other Ultimate Football heroes book. In fact, I am looking forward to reading the one about England’s Smith next.
This is one of four biographies about leading women footballers that are being reviewed by our bloggers – each book will have two reviews. You can find out more about the complete series at Ultimate Football Heroes.
Both White’s cleverly taken goals, one in each half, put England into the Round of 16 as group winners. The Lionesses next play on Sunday and will find out their opponents after today’s results.
I don’t like football because everyone knows it as a boy sport! Some people think boys are better at football than girls, even though we are all equal.
I think the most important value is honesty, because when you are honest you are telling the truth and when you keep it in you don’t feel good about yourself.
