“The magazine includes lots of information about what’s going on in football.”
“There are lots of illustrations and pictures to look at and it is very interesting. I know more about football now.”
“The magazine is great, the stats on football players are very interesting.”
“I really like the comics, they were hilarious. I also think it is the right amount of information.”
This is the most important value because everybody is equal and nobody’s better than anyone else.
This is about famous football legend Marta da Silva. It follows her life from playing on dried up riverbeds in her home town, to the titanic stadiums of the World Cup.
Marta is a gripping, well-written biography – an interesting read suitable for ages 9+. The author is incredibly good at using a range of descriptive language to paint a picture in your mind of what is happening at that moment – you feel as if you are at Marta’s games.
As a goalkeeper and Manchester City fan, I love to watch and play football and this book gave me the same thrill that fills me when I play. The highlights of this book, for me, are the matches. They are described incredibly well and the detailed description of each player’s movements helps to keep the reader engaged.
This book is very inspirational, especially for young footballers. It shows that if you try hard and keep working tenaciously you can achieve any goal, no matter how high the expectations are.
In conclusion, I loved this book and highly recommend it, not just to football fans but to anyone who has a love of reading. I also think the quizzes and video links are a great way to finish off this amazing book.
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.
Football is a great sport because it’s tense and exciting. I like it because it is unpredictable and energising.
Playing it with your friends is a great way to have fun. It also keeps you fit in a way that you won’t notice.
The downside of football is that people can get injured and sometimes it can be used as an excuse for people to use racism and discrimination, which is annoying.
In conclusion, football is my favourite sport
