    The informative novel My Soccer Book by Gail Gibbons is a book about soccer and what it consists of. However, the book generally doesn’t tell a story but gives readers information of what players wear, what a soccer field contains, how many players on a team, and how soccer is played. Each picture on the page supports the text and uses vocabulary words to create an understanding for readers. The informative novel was able to expand the reader’s awareness by letting them take a look into the world of soccer. By getting the perspective with use of pictures, the reader is able to learn about soccer. For example, in the novel there is a picture of a soccer field with labels of the field such as penalty area, goal, sideline, and center line. However, the reader is unable to give empathy because there is not specific plot or characters. The novel provides an enjoyable read that doesn’t teach a moral because it is more to inform readers about soccer. Furthermore, the novel tells the truth of what soccer consists of by using accurate insight but there were not characters in the story. The novel meets the criteria of embodying qualities because the description of soccer is telling by use of precise and descripted words. The plot is convincing because it explained exactly what happens during a soccer game such as how many players on a team. However, there were not characters in the story but there was picture which can be believable soccer players. Furthermore, the novel has integrity because it brings the literature works into making a satisfying whole. Finally, the informative novel meets the criteria of being original because it creates a fascinating viewpoint for readers. Also, it was able to give readers a new way of thinking about what soccer consists of as well as looks like with use of multiple vocabulary words.I didn’t enjoy the informative novel because it didn’t tell an interesting story that caught my attention. The book not telling a story struck me because I expected it to have an interesting story line about soccer. However, the story is relatable to my life because as a child I played soccer. Furthermore, I would use the novel in my classroom by tucking it way in the bookcase where students can view the book on their own time.

    The book "My Soccer Book" by Gail Gibbons is a very good informative book. This book provides information about the game of soccer on every single page. A child could read this book and have a very good idea about how the game of soccer works. This book was a very informative read. The book was very accurate on how the game of soccer works. This book explained everything about soccer from what you wear to the positions on a soccer team. The information was presented in a very organized way. The book starts with very basic information like the types of uniforms you usually wear when playing soccer to the field positions on the soccer field when playing soccer. The format of the book and design is very appealing to children. The use of brightly colored pictures that go along with the text seem to draw children in to read this book. The authors writing stly os very clear and promotes enthusiasm for this topic. The author accomplishes this by the use of short easy to understand sentences and pictures that go along with the text. I really enjoyed reading this book. I seemed to be drawn in with interest as I kept on reading. One thing that struck me about this book was the glossary in the back of the book with words that deal with soccer that children may have a hard time understanding. I can't really relate this book to my life due to the fact that I don't play soccer. To a soccer player this book would be a great tool though. I would use this book in a class setting if I was teaching a gym class the game of soccer. I would read the students this book before we play the game so they get a good idea about how this sport works.
