I haven't read this yet, but the book's subject is a vital lesson for children (and adults) in the real world. To be able to lose - and win - graciously is such an important skill. Too many children are being raised by parents overly concerned with "self esteem" and missing out on teaching their children about how to lose with courage and class.

This is a great easy read that reminds not just the kids in your family but also parents, and in my case, grandparents how important it is to be a Good Sport. Basic sports etiquette that works just as well with Dad's Sunday Soccer game as with the munchkin's is presented in an engaging and entertaining way. Memorable reminders teach this important etiquette and keep it top of mind and simple for the whole family!

This book put good sportsmanship into an easy to read format for children and adults. I enjoyed the parent boxes for each topic as well as the illustrations. The bulleted list at the end was also helpful.

I also enjoyed the way this book was organized as it went in a sort of before a game to after the game approach.
