Morgan Plays Soccer
By Anne Rockwell
Published By Harper Collins

Review by: Lori Plach

       Morgan Brownbear is new to the neighborhood. He receives a gift from his Aunt Lucy - its a beautiful purple silky shirt with a number on the back. He hurriedly puts it on and goes to play outside. His next door neighbor, Nina Jane Monkey is eager to introduce herself and make a new friend. She assumes that since Morgan is wearing a soccer jersey, he enjoys soccer as much as she does. Nina Jane convinces Morgan to play soccer. Morgan's father takes him to the sporting goods store to buy the needed equipment.
     The coach, Mr. Monkey, demonstrates kicking, dribbling and heading the ball. Morgan forgets the most important rule of all when Katie Catz
passes the ball to him. You cannot touch the ball with your hands unless you are the goalie. He feels humiliated. That is just one of his
disappointments. Morgan is devastated when he sees that Nina Jane and him are on different times. Nina Jane assures him that even if they are on opposite teams they can still be friends. 
      Morgan is ready to give up soccer entirely. Nina Jane offers to help him practice. Morgan is convinced that soccer is too hard and he will never be any good at it. On the day of the scrimmage, Morgan discovers what position he would excel at. He is very excited and even
blocks one of Nina Jane's attempts to score. 
     Aspiring athletes will love this book published by Harper Collins
Publishers. The illustrations are excellent and the characters show
emotion and feeling. With a little practice, the frustrations of trying a sport can turn out to be a very rewarding experience!
