Booklist - 05/15/2015 The large-format books in the World Soccer Legends series present either a team or a star player through a combination of text, statistics, and riveting photographs. While Jokulsson is writing mainly for fans, even kids with little knowledge of professional soccer will absorb information about the sport’s history, stars, and teams. Notable for their color, clarity, and drama, the many impressive photos of players on the field will draw readers to these eye-catching books, which were originally published in Iceland. The translated texts are somewhat uneven in quality. U.S. Women’s Team features great players, past and present, as well as memorable events in the team’s history. With the quadrennial Women’s World Cup taking place in Canada this summer, this will be a timely addition to many collections. Attractive additions to the sports shelves. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
