Big Kicks by Bob Kolar (Candlewick Press, 2008)
It's soccer season and Biggie Bear is just what the team needs! No matter the fact that Biggie Bear is not athletic. In fact, he happily spends his days collecting stamps, listening to jazz, and enjoying time alone. But when Brown Dog comes down with fleas, the town's soccer team needs Biggie Bear to step in. Everyone is in for a treat on (and off) the soccer field - learning about each other's own unique gifts.
