Description-

  • Audisee® eBooks with Audio combine professional narration and text highlighting to engage reluctant readers! When veggie-nibbling Grazers and meat-munching Biters take to the soccer field, it's a showdown of prehistoric proportions. Diplodocus shows an herbivore's soft touch and strikes first for the Grazers. But Gallimimus takes a pass from the twin Pterodactyls on the wings and finishes it off to even things up for the Biters. In the second half, Apatosaur scores the go-ahead goal for the veggie-side, but then a brawl results in red cards for both teams. Hungry to tie the game, Biter Allosaurus takes advantage. Now it's 2-2, setting up the teeth-gnashing, claw-curling final minutes. . . .

    August 1, 2009
    Gr 1-3-Once again Wheeler and Gott have teamed up for an action-packed sports extravaganza. The Grazers, in gold, take on the blue-uniformed Biters in a rough-and-tumble soccer match. Cheered on by their enthusiastic and colorful fans, the vegetarian and meat-eating dino players pass, steal, and trap the ball as they travel up and down the field. Each exciting play is recounted in rhyming verse with the names of the dinosaurs printed in the appropriate team color to indicate whether they are herbivore or carnivore. The play-by-play commentary is sprinkled with terms like "check," "spike," and "dribble," which will resonate with young soccer players. As the game progresses, the competition is fierce and the score teeters back and forth. At the end of the day, the Biters prevail, but the vanquished Grazers refuse to give up. Soon they will meet their opponents on the baseball field for a spirited game of Dino-ball. Gott's vibrant illustrations increase the suspense and fast pace of the rollicking narrative. The expressive faces of the players and the frenetic energy of the pictures add a bit of humor to the story. Sports fans and dinosaur lovers will delight in this follow-up to "Dino-Hockey" (Carolrhoda, 2007)."Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA"

    "Though soccer has yet to catch on in this country in the way it has in the rest of the world, that doesn't mean that it isn't a popular sport—and likely to become even more so as the World Cup 2010 competition heats up this month.

    That interest is certainly reflected in the rising flood of tales and informational titles being released. Here are some new and recent books (plus one or two classics) that are likely to score with young readers—and perhaps adults in need of quick refreshers on the game's rules and history.

    History and Stars

    . . .

    STEWART, Mark. Goal! The Fire and Fury of Soccer's Greatest Moment. Millbrook, 2010. Gr 5-7—Stewart wraps a history of the game, bizarre incidents, record-setting achievements, and portraits of some of the game's greatest players around absorbing, high-tension accounts of 10 renowned goals.

    Fiction on the Pitch

    . . .

    WHEELER, Lisa. Dino-Soccer. Illus by Barry Gottt. Carolrhoda, 2009.

    Gr 1-3—It's prehistoric pandemonium when the vegetarian Grazers square off against the carnivorous Biters before stands filled with cheering dinos. Wheeler's fast and furious verse finds a perfect counterpart in Gott's richly colored scenes of jersey-clad creatures battling furiously for the ball—right down to the suspenseful final moments."
