Dear Soccer by Matteo Iuzzolino is a beautiful picture book about a child’s love of soccer. In his letter to Soccer, he writes about the benefits of playing soccer, including the physical, mental, and emotional benefits. Not only is he active and playing outside with friends, but he also plays soccer anywhere, at home, at school, in the street with the neighborhood kids, and his family. It brings his family together as they enjoy the game of soccer. He also learns to engage positively with his teammates; through soccer, he makes many friends and bonds with his siblings. He learns about leadership and playing fairly, and from his coach, he learns about the strategy required to play soccer well. Dear Soccer is a comprehensive list of reasons to love soccer and its immense value in a child’s life.
Dear Soccer by Matteo Iuzzolino is a bright and colorful storybook that beautifully portrays a child’s love for soccer and the many reasons to love the game. I loved the beautiful and vivid illustrations, and I enjoyed how this picture book is specifically about sport. I think physical activity is essential, especially when children would instead be viewing a screen in their spare time. Dear Soccer not only shows children how much fun they can have playing soccer but also shows parents the valuable life lessons children learn when participating in sports. Dear Soccer is a unique, delightful, inspirational storybook that will undoubtedly evoke children’s interest in sports and nudge them to drop the screens.
