Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Brothers Marshall and Art are karate experts. Their father, Johnny, has a karate studio. Now the boys want to play soccer. They join a team. Chad Barrett, the coach's son, is a good player on the team. The boys enjoy playing, but when they lose the last game of the season, Coach Barrett and Chad sneer at the winning team. Johnny explains that karate teaches good sportsmanship. Coach Barrett changes his attitude when he sees that his son Chad is not happy with things. Coach Barrett asks if Chad can learn karate. They all go off together to have ice cream. The cartoon-like pictures show a very angry and fearsome coach. Tips for being a good sport for children and adults are found at the end. "Part of playing a team sport is showing good sportsmanship. This means playing well with others and winning and losing with grace!" Although Coach Barrett decides to change his ways, showing a parent in the wrong and calling parents by their first names does not recommend this simplistic story. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
