Sportsmanship - Book Review

Winning Isn’t Everything

Howard B. Wigglebottom 
Learns About Sportsmanship

I've introduced you to my favorite bunny, Howard, before. Now I want to tell you about his great new book about sportsmanship, for kids from 4 to 8 years old. Some kids are naturally good at sports and some are not, but either way, everyone needs to learn to be a good sport. It's the most important life lesson an athlete can learn.

Last night I watched a great movie called "A Warriors Heart", which is essentially about the same thing but on a high school/young adult level. It's never too early to start teaching kids how to play fair and cooperate as a team. The more they practice being a good sport, the more it will help them later in life. It's not an easy lesson though, that's why I think Howard B. Wigglebottom  can help.

The new book, Winning Isn't Everything, helps young children learn about respect, camaraderie, teamwork and the pleasure of playing games and sports for the fun of it.

At there are several free resources to support the book like a song, a printable poster, and lessons & discussion questions.

Howard B. Wigglebottom hardcover books retail for $15. They can be purchased most everywhere books are sold in the U.S. and Canada.

  1. Hi! Found you on the blog hop today. I see we have a lot in common -I'm a homeschool mom of teens too! As a mom of 4 (two young adults, 2 teens), I'm nearing the end of this phase of parenting and soaking up each minute. It has always been my passion and I agree with your tips about connecting with each age group as they grow.
    Have a great weekend! Following now!
