Evie loves to run, jump, hop and most of all - win! In fact, she had a special place in her room for all her trophies and ribbons. So, on Field Day, she looked forward to adding to her collection.
When the big day rolled around, Evie couldn’t wait to blaze past her classmates. So when things didn’t go her way, she stomped, scored and downright pouted! Evie was a sore loser, alright.
When Evie finds herself ahead of the pack and faced with an important decision, will she choose the chance at a trophy or the chance to be a kind friend?
Will she be able to look her past her love of the limelight and stay true to what really matters? Could it be that some things actually feel better than winning?
Join Evie as she navigates the playground and learns about sportsmanship and the challenge of losing.
The best book for teaching there’s more than one way to win.
