The We Do Listen Foundation has kindly let us do another review for one of their wonderful books. Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship:
Winning Isn't Everything
by Howard Binkow and Susan F. Cornelison.
This beautifully illustrated book teaches children about playing fair and how it's not always necessary to be number one. Some people have the need to always be the one that wins, and to be better than everyone else, which really isn't all that bad. But such a desire to be the best can lead to other behavior problems like aggressiveness towards peers and anger problems. This book addresses how being competitive and winning isn't as important as just having fun at the game. This would be a great book for any parent that has children that play sports or has multiple children. Anyone that has ever had a brother or sister knows how competitively siblings grow-up together, and the fights that can break out on account. Sportsmanship is one of the greater traits that anyone can learn at a young age.Howard B. Wigglebottom also shows how other people will behave towards them if they are unsporting or cheat at a game just to be better than everyone.
Because We Do Listen Foundation Cares they offer an abundance of free materials
that work together with the books.
Through life children have to learn to deal with many tough situations and We Do Listen Foundation has put together a wonderful collection of books designed to not only teach children how to cope with them but adults also. Howard B. Wigglebottom hardcover books retail for $15. They can be purchased most everywhere books are sold in the U.S. and Canada.
