Synopsis

Morgan Brownbear's new friend Nina Jane Monkey loves soccer so much that soon Morgan is sure he wants to play too. But soccer has a lot of rules, and Morgan keeps breaking the most important one of all: He can't seem to stop catching the ball with his hands! Morgan is so embarrassed, he doesn't want to play soccer anymore. But Nina Jane helps Morgan stay in the game by showing him exactly what he needs-practice!

Budding athletes will understand Morgan's early frustrations and will cheer when he triumphs in this uplifting story about what it means to be a good sport.
