Neymar: A Soccer Dream Come True

Written by Mina Javaherbin, Illustrated by Paul Hoppe


A biography told in picture book style, young readers learn about Neymar, one of the world’s best soccer players, and how he became the soccer star he is today. Hard work, big dreams, and the support of loving parents helped Neymar develop into a world famous player.

The story is told in Neymar’s voice and starts with him as a young boy when he would play pretend soccer matches with his sister and cousins and take on the role of announcer, referee and star. Reading about his dedication and love of the sport is inspiring and will motivate young readers to work hard at whatever it is they are passionate about.
