For the first time in history "The Word Cup" will be played in the United States this year. The site is the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, where the final will be played on Sunday, July 17, 1994. For those of us who are unfamiliar with this, the most popular sport in the world, DREAMS OF SOCCER is a wonderful story which introduces soccer to Americans on this special occasion. The story is about a Scottish family who first arrived from Scotland over 100 years ago. The members of the family, both boys & girls, play the sport & love it. Soccer is different than other sports. It is the only sport in which players are not allowed to use their hands. Maia Wojciechowska weaves a tale that is fun to read, yet full of information about soccer & has many inspirational passages about the value of family life & what participation in sports is all about. The book contains a glossary of terms & diagrams providing the reader with a wealth of information about the sport that might become America's favorite as a result of hosting "The World Cup" this year.
