    Great message!

    I bought two of these books - one for a birthday party for a four year old girl named Mia and for my own four year old girl. The book has a great message about participating in sports and working together as a team. My daughter loves the book and how the character first gets frustrated when she doesn't always win, but she works it out because it is more important to have fun. The illustrations are wonderful and the pictures and stories of Mia Hamm are a great added bonus. I would recommend this book for both boys and girls, ages four to eight.

    It's how you play the game

    I heard of this book on the PBS TV show Reading Rainbow and got it for my child. It's of how a young girl, Mia, is a quitter until her siblings make her watch a soccer game until she plays again. Teaches children to play a game and not to be so concerned with who's winning, but only to have fun.

    A Winning Tale, Told By A Winner

    Winners Never Quit is the delightful tale of a young girl, Mia, who loves to play soccer with her brothers and sisters. She's good at it, too. But one part of the game she hasn't mastered: losing. And when she quits in a temper, she discovers that her negative attitude may cause her to miss out on playing the game she loves. Forced to choose what is most important to her, Mia realizes that winning isn't everything; it's staying in the game that counts. If anyone could tell this message convincingly, it's author Mia Hamm, star of the U.S. National Soccer Team, an Olympic Gold Medalist, World Cup champion, and five-time U.S. Soccer Player of the Year. In an afterword, Ms. Hamm says, 'There is no 'me' in Mia because, in soccer and in life, I could never do it alone.' Children seem to blossom when they realize that others have the same feelings, doubts, desires - the same good and bad traits. It's learning what to do with them that makes them 'grow up.' Readers will feel they have found a friend in Mia Hamm, someone who was once a child too, and probably had to deal with her own dislike of losing in order to become a champion athlete. Soccer fans will appreciate Mia's removable, autographed color photo in the back of the book. Carol Thompson's bold, action-filled illustrations are perfect. Those who enjoy this book might also enjoy another picture book entitled Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee - A Bee's Bit of Wisdom. In it, another young girl has a challenge to face and choices to make. Books like Ruby Lee and Winners Never Quit are valuable tools for teaching children the importance of developing a strong character.
