A game and a book

Can you recommend an excellent board game (preferably involving some skill and thinking, and not an e-game) and an excellent illustrated book with a girls' sports theme (preferably soccer but not necessarily) as gifts for a 4 year-old girl?

The game doesn't need to have a sports theme, just the book.
The girl for whom these would be gifts likes a game called Sequence for Kids because there's some strategy involved (which place on the board is a better location, defense vs. offense, etc.) and some fun involved in deciding which other player you want to block.
She is not a sports nut but likes these aspects of sports: being on a team, having a uniform, doing a group cheer, running through the arm tunnel that the parents make for the kids at the end of the game, etc. I'm hoping there's a good illustrated book out there that revolves around some of those aspects of children's sports.
