Pelé overcomes many obstacles to become one of the most famous soccer player of all times. The message that this books conveys is that with determination, and hard work you can be the best that you can be. It also shares a message of the importance of team work, and good sportsmanship.
These are traits that I want to pass on to our little soccer player! We thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading more about Pelé.
On another note, I am super excited to share with you Multicultural Kid Blogs‘ new series – World Cup for Kids focused on the 2014 World Cup that will be held next year. I will be joining forces with other bloggers from across the globe who will be rooting for their countries, as well as sharing ways to explore the participating team’s countries, and cultures. The Multicultural Kid Blogs currently has a contest running to select the photo that will be used as the logo for the World Cup series.
