Mom's Choice Award for Children’s Picture Books (Gold)
Sally loves to be first at everything! She is first in line at school. She is first out the door at recess. She is first at dinner finishing her mac 'n' cheese! Unfortunately, Sally dislikes losing and this can lead to hot tempers and hurt feelings. She even gets the nickname "Sally Sore Loser" from her classmates at school.
With the help of her teacher and her mom, Sally learns the rules for being a good winner and a good loser. She learns to say to herself, "I've won if I had fun!"
A Note to Parents is included, with practical tips for teaching children to be good winners and good losers.From the Note to Parents: Good sportsmanship and learning how to play well with others are important skills to teach children on and off the field. “Being a good sport” is not an innate skill. Beginning in early childhood, children need to learn how to share, follow rules, handle emotions, try their best, and win and lose with respect, dignity, and graciousness.
