Unless you’ve been hiding underneath a rock, you’ll know that the Football World Cup in South Africa has started. There’s soccer all over the news and on the TV and even somebody like me who isn’t really a sporty person can’t help but be excited.
There are lots of books in the library on soccer, from books teaching you how to play to stories about kids who love the game.
