Book Review: Manchester United

Manchester United, by Mark Stewart is a part of the First Touch Soccer series. Throughout this twenty-four page book, there are full-color photographs and interesting facts about this famous British soccer club.

According to a publisher's note, "First Touch Soccer provides budding fans with an organized an informative gateway to the most dynamic teams and players in the world's most popular sport...known throughout most of the world as football. From club history and culture to fierce rivalries and world-class competitions, each book focuses on an individual team, tying it to its city and country."
Manchester United is an enjoyable and educational book, which is geared towards children, particularly ages five to nine.

Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.


  1. This would be a great book for my nephew who loves all sports and sports teams!

    1. That's great! And there are several more enjoyable soccer books in this series, too.

  2. If I remember correctly, the team suffered a huge loss when their plane crashed in the 1960s I think. I was a huge football fan when I grew up in England. Crystal Palace was my home team.
