Praise for Goal!

"Eye-catching photographs and straightforward text introduce soccer and showcase the accessibility and universality of the sport . . . A rousing celebration of global diversity and the game that unites us all." - School Library Journal
 
"It's all about the pictures in this photographic global tour of kids playing soccer . . . Great photos, and good stories are all young soccer fans will really need." - BCCB
 
"Language and cultural barriers may exist, but soccer - aka football - has become a common denominator among nations around the world. This attractive book sets out to demonstrate how the sport engages kids, rich or poor, with or without shoes." - Booklist
 
"Viela's photographs take center stage: They are full of action and neat slices of geography as well, with kids playing beside the megaliths of Stonehenge, stupas in Nepal and a refugee camp in Jordan . . . A solid introduction to soccer, carrying with it the sport's openness to any and all." - Kirkus Reviews
