Kids’ Club Review by Luke: Billie B. Brown: The Soccer Star

Billie B. Brown: The Soccer Star, by Sally Rippin

Billy wants to play soccer like her best friend Jack but the other boys will not let her because she is a GIRL. Billy comes up with a plan to get the boys to let her play and it involves her pretending to be a boy. Will this plan work? This book is easy to read and would be great for girls who like to do things people traditionally think boys do. I gave it 5 stars and think children 5 + should read it.

Kids’ Club Review by Katya: Goal!

Goal!Goal!, by Anna Matthew

They like to play football. Tom likes to get a goal. Tom made a mistake the first, the second, the third time. He kicked the ball into a pram (there may be a baby inside), a bin, an ice cream van (it may have touched the ice cream). His dad said look at the net. Tom kicked the ball in the net and Tim was really happy. He says sorry to all the people.
