Important Lessons about Friendship and Sportsmanship
Pingo is a leprechaun who is made up by a kid named Chad. His classmates have other imaginary friends. They all go on adventures together. One of the kids, named Jeremy, has an imaginary friend named Grunt and they are bullies at first so the other kids have to hide from them. One day, the kids are trying to prove who the best imaginary friend is. To see who is best, they plan a competition. Pingo comes in second at every competition. Each of the other imaginary friends wins once. Then Grunt is upset that he wasn’t in the competition. So Pingo offers to have a competition the next week with Grunt. Pingo asks Jeremy and Grunt to join in a pretend adventure down the Amazon River. Jeremy and Grunt agree to play with the other kids and imaginary friends. They go get the supplies and join the others on an adventure! Everyone cheers for Pingo and say that he is the best. Pingo tells them that everyone is good at different things. He knows that it’s good to have fun on games instead of just trying to win. They were all best friends forever and went on lots of adventures together.Was this review helpful?

I give this book a four star rating. I loved the content and the message, but some of the pictures scared me. I do think that every kid should read this book because it teaches important lessons about friendship and sportsmanship. My favorite part was when Pingo tells all of the classmates that everyone is good at something different. It’s important for kids to know that so that they focus on the fun of the games they play since fun is all that matters when playing games. This book teaches that kids should be good friends to each other and not compare themselves to others.
