"Bend it like Messi""A Fascinating and fun-time bed story with beautiful illustrations to go with. I read it to my son, and we talked about each chapter and why Sean acted the way he did in new situations.

Tanya believes in the power of literature as a means to growth, education, and the cultivation of curious, compassionate, happy children. Raised by parents who grew up in the USSR, Tanya received a strict "old school" Russian education, emphasizing discipline, persistence and restraint. As you will discover in Tanya’s semi-autobiographical books, passing down "old school" values to her modern day football-fanatic son is a continuous balance of patience, love, boundaries, and surrender, which brings to mind another Russian principle: “Education never ends.” http://sean-wants-to-be-messi.com
