Messi is an ace soccer player on the team from Barcelona. Young Sean dreams of one day becoming just like Messi. Sean would rather think about soccer than math problems any day. He doesn’t like math but he sure does like soccer. When Sean’s mommy grants his wish and pays for him to join a kids soccer club, Sean is overjoyed – until he arrives at the practice field. Many of the other players are bigger than him; he’s afraid of being hurt so he begs his mommy to take him home. Will he ever achieve his dream of playing soccer?
This is a charming book that teaches children to overcome their fears. Beautifully illustrated, it is the first book in a series.
