Goal! Kids of all sizes (and soccer abilities) will get a kick out of this humorous tale of high expectations — and the rewards of being yourself.
Biggie Bear lives in a quiet corner of a busy little town. He collects stamps, plays jazz, and enjoys being by himself. One day, the town soccer team knocks on his door, and they need BIG help. Biggie's never played soccer before, and once they are out on the fi eld, Biggie realizes that maybe there is more to soccer than just being big. Bob Kolar's droll, vibrantly illustrated tale about a lovable (but rather clumsy) bear and his endearing (but rather unlucky) team is sure to win some BIG fans.
