Didn't have enough soccer stuff in this to make it catch the interest of my young soccer reader.

Do you know which country won the 2010 FIFA World Cup in soccer? If you are a die-hard soccer fan, you probably could answer, "Spain!" In this book, the reader can join professional soccer player Ethan Zohn as he continues his around-the-world adventures using soccer as a conduit for learning. While in Spain, he and his young friend Javier experience La Boqueria, one of the largest outdoor markets in Europe, along with other fascinating sites at Barcelona; travel to the capital Madrid for the El Clasico soccer game between the FC Barcelona and the Madrid Real at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium; fly to Palos so that they can see the Iberian lynx, one of the rarest animals on the planet, at the nearby Donana National Park; take a hike in the Picos Mountains of northern Spain; and visit the Canary Islands. Can you remember what famous historical event took place at Palos in 1492?
Author Ethan Zohn, born in 1973, was a soccer goalkeeper at Vassar College, and played professionally for the Hawaii Tsunami and Cape Cod Crusaders of the United Soccer Leagues and in Zimbabwe, Africa, for Highlanders FC. As a contestant on Survivor: Africa, the third season of the reality TV series Survivor, he won $1,000,000 and donated some of his winnings to co-found Grassroot Soccer whose goal is to "mobilize the global soccer community to combat the AIDS epidemic in Africa." Shortly afterwards. he was hired by ESPN to serve as a sideline reporter for the US National Team's matches in the 2002 FIFA World Cup. In 2005, Zohn began to co-host the Metro Soccer Report (later renamed MSG Soccer Report) on the MSG Network, a weekly show dedicated to Red Bull New York (formerly MetroStars) of Major League Soccer, and as of April 2006, he hosted FC Fox on the Fox Soccer Channel. In 2008 Zohn hosted Earth Tripping, a six-episode series, in which he demonstrated how to be "an earth-friendly traveler," visiting New York City, Mexico City, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Santiago, Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina. The following year, he was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called CD20-positive Hodgkin's lymphoma but is now in remission.
Ethan is also co-writing a series of children's books that takes young readers around the world where they can learn about geography, history, and culture. Two previous books in the series are set in Mexico and South Africa. In addition to a lot of interesting background information about Spain, there is a list of "Words 2 Know" where terms used in the text are defined at nearly every opening. Several multi-curricular activities are included, such as learning how to say "My name is" in some of the different languages of Spain, creating your very own community, burying a time capsule, building a fantastic sand drip castle, experimenting with electricity, doing a rock art project, and making a volcano that actually erupts with "lava," that relate to language, social studies, science, and art. On the last page there are a glossary and an index to increase the usefulness of this fun book as a learning tool. It is a great way to introduce soccer loving youngsters to Spain and its culture.

I was still watching Survivor when Ethan Zohn won. He was an immediate favorite as he actually had an ethical plan to win the game. There have been so many Survivor seasons now, I'm not even sure which one they are currently on. Ethan was definitely one of my favorite contestants and I was shocked when I found out that he had cancer. Luckily, (I believe) his cancer is in remission and he is continuing to spread his love of soccer throughout the world. Zohn is actually using his celebrity and money from Survivor to perform good deeds.

We love soccer at my house. My husband used to play in high school and my oldest son definitely has a natural talent and affinity for the game. With three boys in the house, I predict we will be attending many soccer games in the future. My three year old will get his first chance this summer. He can't wait.

I have had the pleasure of reviewing several books from Nomad Press and I continue to be impressed by the quality of these selections. Soccer World Spain takes the sport of soccer (football, for other countries of course) and explains the sport within the context of that country. This means that not only is the book about soccer, but it is also all about Spain. This is the third book in the series- other countries being featured include South Africa and Mexico. I love how the book takes new words and highlights them (as you can see in the picture). Rather than having simple, plain text, the book has many different sections and eye catching text and pictures.

And like almost all Nomad Press books this one has hands on activities. Each chapter contains a project that can add a additional dimension of learning. This book would be great for homeschooling or would be a great resource for teachers.

If your kids love soccer this is a great way to expose them to other cultures!
