Praise & Reviews

Junior Library Guild

  • There’s plenty of action as Ben’s team competes in the playoffs . . . and finally, in the championship game that the previous Kickers books have been leading up to.
  • Game-Day Jitters, like the other titles in the series, emphasizes positive values such as the importance of working hard and being a team player. This installment focuses on learning to be a gracious winner—and a gracious loser, too.
  • The other members of Ben’s team gain prominence as each has a key role to play in the championships.
  • Fans will be pleased that this conclusion to the Kickers series hints at the possibility of a new series for the characters.
  • Jimmy Holder’s illustrations bring the soccer games to life.
