Michael’s Soccer Triumph:

Following the success of Imagination Nation, Matthew has produced another dazzling story in rhyme that incorporates dozens of English-Spanish cognates.  Readers ages 6 through grown-ups will enjoy this story of the “the little soccer player who could”.  They will also gain exposure to sophisticated and challenging vocabulary while learning to spot English/Spanish connections: verdant/verde; conduct/conducir; commence/comenzar. Such vocabulary may be advanced in English, but theSpanish equivalents are used in everyday conversation. Spanish speakers especially will soak up English vocabulary with ease.  Great for reading as a family and in class.  Suggested topics for discussion and a mix and match word activity included in the afterward.
