Football School Season 4: Where Football Explains the World

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Walker Books

Coaches Alex and Ben are back for a fourth season of the brilliantly informative Football School. These standalone books are the perfect way to get any keen footballers to read about the world beyond the pitch.

Cleverly structured like a school day, the book is broken into different lessons; biology, music, modern languages, computer sciences, philosophy, history, politics, English and magic are all on the timetable in this book. Each lesson then explores a specific topic: biology is all about spitting; philosophy is about failure; English is about etymology; and maths is about time. The topics are laid out in a chatty, humorous text, with football-related examples and explanations.

It’s a genius format that makes everything accessible and interesting, whether you really love football or not – it’s just a common pitch to spread everything across. The cartoon illustrations are silly and also keep the pages looking lively and inviting to reluctant readers.

A brilliant present for fact and football fans – these books should be in every school library.
