But, not everything goes according to plan as Aiden learns when he’s left on the sidelines the first game of the season. Disappointed even though his te

We are trying to read books with T right now that will help him process difficult feelings (anger, disappoint, etc.). This story is about a boy facing disappointment, so I was eager to read it with T when the author offered us a copy for review.

Believe in yourself

A perfect children's book for soccer players. Aiden just needed a chance to shine and when he got a chance, he took it! The new opportunity gave him confidence and self esteem. All kids who play sports will be able to relate to this wonderful story.

One day the goalie is sick, and the coach asks Aiden to fill in for the goalie. This opportunity allows him to practice all the moves especially the goalie’s strategies. ...more

Recommends it for: children who like sports, soccer fans
Recommended to Kelly by: Won as part of the Goodreads Firstreads giveaways
This is a sweet book about a little boy who wants to play soccer. While he makes the team, he spends most of the time on the bench. Will the absence of one of the other players give Aiden the chance to play? And if he does play, will he be good enough?

I like that this book has a small vocabulary section at the end. However, it may have missed an industry specific word. "bye week" is industry specific to sports. If the reader is not familiar with sports terms, the only way to get the meaning is
