Rate this:
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....
