 What did you like about the book? Bizzy Bear is at his soccer game and the game is INTENSE! Bizzy Bear has to focus in order to make a pass to get a goal for the team. Bizzy Bear is successful and the crowd cheers loudly. The book is more of an interactive board book where children can play with different pieces in the book to move the ball or to move the goalie and the crowd. The illustrations are digital cartoon drawings of Bizzy Bear and his other animal soccer friends. The book is definitely a fun one to read with your new budding soccer player.

Anything you did not like about the book? Nothing I would change about this book.

 To whom would you recommend this book? This book is perfect for children 2.5 to 4 who might just be getting into young children’s sports!

Who should buy this book? Daycare centers and preschools 

Where would you shelve it? Board books

 Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
