Message from Rob – Keen cricketer and rubbish hurdler
“I hope the books inspire all children, able-bodied and disabled, to learn about and get involved in sports. Everyone’s familiar with football but these books put young readers on the starting blocks to learn about a massive range of sports including less well-known track and field sports like Trampolining and Wheelchair rugby.
Sport is a great way to teach young children the importance of teamwork and playing within a set of rules. Everyone can have fun with sport, no matter what their size or shape, ability or disability and being active is so good for you. It helps with fitness, strengthens your body, makes you feel good and can be a great way to build confidence and friendships.
I firmly believe there is a sport out there for every single child.
Join in the race – and give them a chance to shine!”
