The world’s most popular and inclusive sport has found its spirited, poetic, and authentic voice in Baptiste Paul’s debut picture book, The Field. Join us as he reads this story that highlights the joys of the game along with its universal themes: teamwork, leadership, diversity, and acceptance. “Vini! Come! The field calls!” cries a girl as she and her younger brother rouse their community—family, friends, and the local fruit vendor—for a pickup futbol game. Boys and girls, young and old, players and spectators come running—bearing balls, shoes, goals, and a love of the sport.
- Introduced by: Ms. Antweil’s 2nd Grade Class Casis Elementary
