Soccer at the Carson City Library !

In conjunction with Goal 2010!, CCAI's exhibition of World Cup fine art posters at its Courthouse Gallery, the CCAI Blog! is delighted to feature related books and media at the Carson City Library.

The library's collection has an impressive number of tomes devoted to the 'beautiful game. With this post, we  spotlight "Mia Hamm: Soccer Star" by Rob Kirkpatrick.

The 24 page book features information on the United States' most famous soccer player–with all due respect to Landon Donovan! It's a good introduction to Ms. Hamm and a fine 'read to,' 'look at together' book for parents and four to eight year-olds.

The text is pegged at a third grade level for young readers.

You can browse all the library's soccer books by visiting the library -- or by visiting the library's  online catalog.
