Hi and a very warm welcome to "The FIFA World Cup." A Fascinating Book Containing World Cup Facts, Trivia, Images & Memory Recall Quiz: Suitable for Adults & Children. I'm one of those people who loves to hear about extraordinary facts or trivia about anything. They seem to be one of the few things my memory can actually recall. I'm not sure if it's to do with the shock or the "WoW" factor but for some reason my brain seems to store it for a later date. I've always been a great believer in that whatever the subject, if a good teacher can inspire you and hold your attention, then you'll learn Now I'm not a teacher but the system I've used in previous publications on Amazon seems to work well, particularly with children. This edition includes a selection of those "WoW" facts combined with some pretty awesome pictures, if I say so myself At the end there is a short "True or False" quiz to check memory recall and to help cement some of the information included in the book. Don't worry though, it's a bit of fun but at the same time, it helps to check understanding. If you're an expert on this subject then it's unlikely you will find anything new here but if, like me, you enjoy learning unusual facts with interesting pictures then I think you'll love it. Let me know what you think using the Customer Review Page section. Feedback is crucial to any author but please remember that I do have feelings. Enjoy the show Matt.

Fearsome Fred always took the new ball
He was lightning fast and ever so tall
He'd sprint to the crease with one final jump
He'd aim to hit the top of off stump...

Cricket Our Great Summer Game is the great way of introducing Cricket to children in a rhyming story. Two vibrant pictures and eight lines of rhyme explain the role of all the key players in a game of cricket, including opening batsmen, tailenders, fast bowlers, spinners and even the umpires, using the terminology of the great game.

Finished with a diagram of the pitch highlighting various fielding positions, explanations of how the batsmen can be dismissed and what the key umpire signals mean, this is a fun way of giving children a good understanding of the game.

Long before he was sacking quarterbacks, Tamba Hali was facing bigger challenges. Learn about his life in this second book in a brand-new nonfiction series about the childhoods of your favorite athletes.

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali’s story seems almost unbelievable. He and his seven siblings fled war-torn Liberia to the Ivory Coast during his youth and later joined their father, a chemistry and physics professor, in New Jersey.

There Tamba played both basketball and soccer, but he didn’t discover football until a coach finally persuaded him to try out in high school. And the rest, as they say, was history. Tamba discovered that he had a real talent for it, landing him an athletic scholarship to Pennsylvania State University and a coveted spot on their football team.

Tamba went on to play in the NFL and finally brought his mother to the US from Liberia. His drive, dedication, and athletic ability are inspiring.
