Mia's favorite sport is soccer but she hates losing. In fact, she dislikes it so much that she quits in the middle of a game. Upset about her attitude, her siblings do not let her participate the next day. Mia learns quickly that there will be times when she will score a goal and those when she will not, but playing the game is the most fun of all. Bright, energetic cartoons depict the child's ups and downs.
This book is about Mia's experience playing soccer with her family. It is not about her playing in the "big" games such as the World Cup. I think young kids can relate to this book because it is more about being a good sport in a playground setting. It is not about winning it is about the love of play and soccer.
