They’re perfect for children who would rather play football than sit and read. With Dan Freedman’s books, you have a vague chance they might put the ball down and sit and turn a few pages.
Kick off features a fairly standard missed opportunity plot device, which Jamie then has to atone for. The book isn’t just about football, it’s about the importance of friends and how to balance your passions with the mundanities of life, like school work. Hugely popular with my boys these books are the perfect way to help one passion spark off another.
