Lydia Williams in goalkeeper for the Matilda’s and her message is clear, ” I just want to motivate and hopefully be a role model for kids so that they know they can do anything they set their mind to. And have fun whilst doing it too”. She has done this through her first book Saved!!!
This year I have read so many Junior series but have been unable to share them all. Here are four series that are funny, silly and sometimes a little gross.
Whether you call it soccer or football, if you’re a fan of the sport you will love this new series that has been developed in partnership with the Football Federation Australia. The Mix Up, the first in The Champion Charlies series is a celebration of Australian Soccer, friendship, teamwork, valuing the skills and abilities of others, and sportsmanship.
In just six days this book will be hitting shelves both virtual and within stores and there is so much to love about this book. Particularly, the bright colours and the clever use of photos, and the cartoon pictures that make learning about a sport so much fun
