I Want to Win!

A book about being a good sport

$12.99

Bella always needs to win—no matter what. At summer Fun Club, she gets mad whenever someone beats her in a game. When she struggles during a tent-making competition, Bella would rather give up than keep trying. Can she learn to do her best and feel good about it, even if she’s not the winner? With the help of the club leader, Bella discovers that she can make a tent, even if it’s not the best tent—and that being a good sport feels much better than being a sore loser.

I Want to Win! uses simple, easy-to-read text to introduce the concept of being a good sport. The book also includes a two-page series of pictures that invites kids to tell a story in their own words. A special section for adults suggests discussion questions and ideas for guiding children to talk about their feelings. Ideal for home and K–3 classroom settings.
