Do you have little athletes in your family? Then this colorful, engaging book is the perfect way to help them understand what it means -- and how important it is -- to be a Good Sport. Soccer? Dancing? Swimming? Whatever sport they do, they’ll learn easy, basic sports manners through reading familiar situations featuring kids just like them. Parents, you’ll also find handy reminders for you with each tip, so that the entire family can learn to be Good Sports together.
“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 munchkins 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!”
“The Kids’ (and parents’, too!) Book of Good Sportsmanship is a guidebook for raising winners, both on and off the field!”
“Children need more books like this, to teach important lessons. Parents are as big a factor in a child’s perception of sports as the children themselves, and the parents’ attitude becomes the children’s. This book teaches children that no one should take sports so seriously that they get angry, be rude, but instead, be gracious, respectful and have fun with it.”
