Howard B Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship....R&G!

A&W have just begun to play t-ball.  It is pretty much our first foray into sports and I was surprised about how winning just sort of automatically takes center stage when in sports even at this young age.  I want the boys to try their best but I want them to know winning is definitely NOT everything.  When I received the book Howard B Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship the timing could not have been bettter!  Here are some details about the book as well as some series background...

This book introduces 4-8 year olds to concepts like respect, camaraderie, teamwork and the pleasure of playing sports and games for the fun of it. The tenth book in the award winning Howard B. Wigglebottom series. Tips and lessons are included.

The We Do Listen Foundation (the non profit behind Howard B Wigglebottom books) has created books, games and more to help children resolve conflicts, stop bullying and feel good about themselves.  The site www.wedolisten.com has a host of great information for children and parents so be sure to pick it out. 

A&W really enjoy Howard B, Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship.  It portrays Howard being a sore loser, his coach taking him out of the game for not being a team player and Howard's realization that winning isn't everything after all. This book sends a great message for all children and I would highly recommend it.  I am eying the other books from the series because this one was so well done.  Be sure to pick up a copy for the team players in your life today...

I am so pleased to tell you that the publisher is giving one lucky RBM reader a copy of Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship! Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter... a Rafflecopter giveaway
