Hurray for soccer!

Anyone at all
at all
can learn to kick
a ball
a ball.
A kangaroo
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.
