Happy Like Soccer
by Maribeth Boelts and Lauren Castillo




Overview -
Unexpected emotional depth. . . . A thought-provoking read-aloud. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Nothing makes Sierra happy like soccer. Her shoes have flames as she spins the ball down the spread-out sea of grass. But nothing makes her sad like soccer, too, because the restaurant where her auntie works is busy on game days and she can't take time off to watch Sierra play. With honesty and subtlety, author Maribeth Boelts and illustrator Lauren Castillo portray an endearing character in a moving, uplifting story that touches on the divides children navigate every day -- and remind us that everyone needs someone to cheer them on from the sidelines.
