Ok, so I got this book for my son who was about to start soccer. He was only 3 and 1/2 at the time and I wanted something to kind of teach him the rules of the game. This book does have all that in there. It teaches don't touch the ball with your hands. It also tries hard at teaching to pay attention because froggy is not paying attention and gets hit on head by the ball. But the problem is that it shows froggy doing cartwheels in the field, picking daisies, and picking his nose. So when we took my son to his first soccer practice he was out on the field trying to do cartwheels, saying "I'm picking daisies" (which were actually dandelions), and saying "I'm picking my nose" as he pinched the tip of his nose. Thank goodness he wasn't actually digging for gold. So while I thought this book would help my son understand what soccer is, he picked up a whole different message from it. That is why I think authors need to be so careful of what kind of behavior they show in a book because kids will imitate the good and the bad. So while this might be ok for an older child, I would stay away from it if you have a child under 4.
