Johnny is getting ready very, very slowly for a soccer match. It’s too hot to play, his team always loses, and he feels he’d be happy if he never, ever played again. The problem is … his father lives and breathes soccer.
Can Johnny find the courage to be honest with his dad? And can Dad accept that his son wants something different? Is there a world beyond soccer?
With insight and humour, Can I? leads the young reader through this age-old story of what happens when parental expectations conflict with a child’s natural talents and desires—showing that everything can be resolved with a little enthusiasm, trust, and love.
Children and parents alike will enjoy this timeless tale of how to deal with conflict and come out smiling.
