Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Morgan Brownbear has trouble playing soccer until his coach, Mr. Monkey, finds the perfect position for him.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #1 August 2001
    Ages 4-6. Soccer fanatic Nina Jane Monkey convinces Morgan Brownbear to play soccer. At the first practice Morgan has trouble remembering not to dribble and not to catch the ball with his hands. Humiliated, he tells Nina he wants to quit, but she won't hear of it. His skills improve thanks to practice, but during the first scrimmage game, he forgets about not catching the ball. That's when the coach decides to put him where he can catch to his heart's content: he makes Morgan the goalie. Morgan's story ends happily, but most youngsters will realize that in real life learning a new skill doesn't always work out as nicely. What comes across best, perhaps, is the importance of finding one's special talent and the value of patience and practice. Meisel's watercolor-and-gouache illustrations, while not exceptional, depict lively animal characters enjoying the game and showing good sportsmanship. Combined with the text, they provide beginning soccer players with a basic introduction to this popular sport. ((Reviewed August 2001)) Copyright 2001 Booklist Reviews
