Hurray for soccer!
Anyone at all
can learn to kick
could do it, too,
a bigger kick
than me or you
but never choose them
for a game
''cause they can kick
but they can''t aim!
This new collection of poems by Loris Lesynski captures the
joys, thrills, and challenges of one of the most popular sports in
the schoolyard today. Rhythmic, funny verses reflect the game''s
energy while offering sound suggestions for proper play.
Crazy About Soccer, a collection full
of twists, turns, and surprises, is sure to appeal to any reader
who has ever played soccer, whether in cleats and a team shirt or
in bare feet and--as in Shakespeare''s day-- with a pig''s bladder
for a ball! Wonderfully ridiculous and genuinely funny artwork
complements the bouncy poems. Included is a page of poems written
by kids. As well, readers will be invited to contribute their own
soccer poems to a special section on the author''s website.
