Meet Bishoy and his father, Ash. They both live in Egypt and love soccer. Bishoy plays soccer, watches matches on TV, and wears jerseys of his favorite player. He is trying out for the prestigious youth club team, but his friends and family are worried that he won't make it. The reason isn't because he isn't talented—it's because he and his family are Coptic Christians living in a predominantly Muslim country.

Created for middle and high school students, PragerU’s Around the World books explore complex topics such as communism, energy needs, and freedom of speech in an age-appropriate manner, and give children a new appreciation for what makes America so unique.
