IT’S SEMI FINAL DAY!
This book follows the life of England star, Fran Kirby. The book starts when Kirby is a young girl dreaming of playing football. One day Reading FC came to Fran’s local park to scout young male footballers. Fran begged the coaches to let her play just one game. Finally, she was allowed to play and they couldn’t believe how talented she was! At the age of 16 Fran made her debut for Reading FC’s senior team. Fran went on to play for England U23s and had a fantastic role in the team.
I really enjoyed reading this book as it inspired me to never give up on my dreams. It was also really interesting to learn all about Fran Kirby’s life. The book shows that football isn’t just for boys; girls can also play and be very successful.
I would rate this book five stars as I love the way it is written- it is easy to read and it tells the story of Fran’s life very well. This book can be enjoyed by all children, of all ages- it is not just for people who like football! I also love how there is a quiz to test your knowledge at the end.
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.
Discrimination is bad because it is rude can involve sexism and racism. For example, sexism is like when a girl invites all the other girls in her class to her birthday party but doesn’t invite any boys because of their gender.
I think it is unfair to discriminate against someone because of their gender. Men and women are equal and can do any job they want to.
Women can join the army, fly aeroplanes and be a mechanic. Also, men should be able to change nappies, cook food for the family and clean the house.
I am glad I don’t live in the olden days when men thought they were better than girls. We are all equal now!
Off to a winning start!
It’s match day!
