I read this children’s biography of the Real Madrid and Portugal football star aloud to my son. Ronaldo is not someone I’ve particularly been impressed by as a person, although his talent is unquestionable. So I was surprised that this kid’s book actually made me feel much greater sympathy for him, as it describes his poor background and his self-awareness that he doesn’t come off quite as well as a more outwardly cheerful player like Lionel Messi. It’s nice when a simple kid’s book can make you think differently about someone.
