Un papa se retrouve à jouer dans l'équipe de soccer de son fils, mais il se laisse un peu trop prendre au jeu…

Dans un renversement de rôle hilarant, le fils devient l'expert qui enseigne à son père ce qu'est l'esprit d'équipe. Sa patience est mise à rude épreuve alors qu'il tente d'instruire son père sur la façon de se comporter tant sur le terrain qu'avec ses coéquipiers.

Un album ludique qui plaira à tous les sportifs et qui fera sourire les mauvais perdants, petits ou grands.


Instead of volunteering to provide halftime snacks, a dedicated Soccer Dad decides to join his son's soccer team. In a hilarious role reversal, the son becomes the frustrated expert who teaches his dad how to be a team player. The boy's patience and understanding are tested as he tries to instruct his father on how to behave on the field and be part of the team.

A playful and funny picture book that includes a lively example on how to be generous and kind to others who are struggling with something new.

Original title: The Day Dad Joined the Soccer Team
