Editorial Reviews

"Playing sports and being active empowers girls for life. Lucy Tries Sports encourages girls to try a wide range of sports and teaches them valuable lessons in leadership, supporting one another, and working towards—and achieving—your goals through sport!"

— Allison Sandmeyer-Graves, CEO at CAAWS (Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity)

"Appealing and friendly illustrations...A fine introductory story to read before a new team gathers to learn the game."

— School Library Journal

"Fitness should be fun, and the Lucy Tries Sports series is a shining example of that."

— Eric Smith, television and Sportsnet Radio play-by-play voice of the Toronto Raptors

"Lucy is an awesome role model for kids at any age! She demonstrates the value of getting involved in sports and how teamwork and good coaching can positively affect childhood and beyond."

— Christine Sinclair, Captain of the Canadian National Soccer team and Olympic medalist

&quotThe Lucy Tries Sports series is terrific for children! It inspires them to be physically active and reinforces so many aspects of their social skill development. A really positive assistance to parenting children.&quot

— Dave King, Member of the Order of Canada, Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame and IIHF Hall of Fame inductee

"This is my number-one recommendation for a game-changing book, for boys and girls alike, about sportsmanship. It's a super-fun read, and though it's targeted to children aged four to eight, my two-year-old is absolutely loving it. Of the hundreds of kids' books I've read this year, the Lucy books from Lisa Bowes are the best."

— Chandra Crawford, Olympic gold medalist and founder of Fast and Female

"In jaunty rhyming text, Bowes captures the exhilaration of the game, building the anticipation as Lucy's team works collaboratively on the field...Emphasizing teamwork and good sportsmanship, the tale focuses on Lucy's enjoyment of the game...A positive example for young players. A "Fast Facts!" section provides further information about soccer for interested readers. The book's format includes text with various words and phrases highlighted in bold, eye-catching colors, accompanied by sunny, upbeat illustrations. Hearne's artwork captures the energetic enthusiasm of Lucy, a redheaded white girl, and her racially diverse friends. The cheery pictures of these young athletes wholeheartedly playing and learning the sport aptly convey the global appeal of soccer. With playful exuberance, Bowes' lively tale shares the fun of soccer with young readers."

— Kirkus Reviews

"The Lucy Tries Sports series teaches how sport is about fun and healthy competition. They also introduce various different sports to young kids and hopefully inspire them to stay active and healthy. I love that my kids can read the series in English and French. These books are a must for the entire family."

— Catriona Le May Doan, OC and two time Olympic Speed Skating Champion

"A great story for sharing with both boys and girls...The story teaches the ins and outs of soccer, in a way that many preschoolers will relate to...Recommended for school and public libraries."

— Resource Links

“I can't wait to share Lucy’s message of fair play and sportsmanship with my own grandchildren. The LUCY stories help children learn about sports in a gentle encouraging fun manner.”

— Tony Wooster, President of Calgary Minor Soccer Association
