This is book number 4 in the Mo Jackson series.
Mo Jackson is back with his fourth sports book. This time Mo is practicing his kicks for the soccer game. He kicks hard and high. During the big game, he's ready, but surprises himself (and the goalie!) when he mostly misses the ball. Read all four of Mo's books: Don't Throw it to Mo!, Get a Hit, Mo!, and Pass the Ball, Mo!, which are just right for newly independent readers who like sports and humor.

This fourth title in the perenially popular, Geisel Award-winning Level 2 readers series features a sport that's a kid favorite: soccer!
The soccer season is starting, and Mo has been working hard on his kicking skills so he can help his team, the Billy Goats, score a goal. But when he gets on the field on game day, it seems like all he gets to do is run back and forth. Will Mo ever get the chance to show his team what he can do?

Praise for Kick It, Mo!:
"Another winning title in the popular series." --School Library Journal
"Simple in its storytelling, strong in its diversity, this is an entertaining as well as enlightening read." --Kirkus Reviews
"The youngest, smallest kid on each team, Mo works hard to learn and improve his skills. Who could begrudge this unlikely sports hero the good luck that comes his way in each book? Not a kid who's working hard to master a similarlycomplex, difficult challenge: learning to read." --Booklist
