Messi Superstar

TITLE: Messi Superstar
AUTHOR: duopress labs
ILLUSTRATOR: Jon Stollberg

About the book:
Millions of kids around the world know Lionel Messi, and they all know he is really good. But do they know how good he really is? To answer this question, this engaging book goes beyond a traditional biography and describes Messi’s life and record-breaking career through the use of fun graphics, comparisons with past and present players, playful reader challenges, and pages chock-full of interesting facts.

My thoughts:
I know nothing about soccer so I was not familiar with this player.  However, this book is a great little resource of information for children to learn more about this soccer player.  I liked how the information was presented with graphs and charts, not words alone.  The size of the book is smaller than a standard book.  The pages are colorful and full of graphics.  

I could see a teacher using this book with a soccer fan to help him/her enjoy reading or to teach about using information from the graphs.  This book will be well received by soccer fans I believe.

This book was provided to me by the publisher Duo Press in exchange for my honest review.  Thank you.
