Number of pages: 32
Synopsis:Win or lose, one thing that’s true . . . No matter what, I love you!
Competition can bring out the worst in us, but it can also be an opportunity to learn impactful life lessons. That’s why it’s so important for kids to understand how to handle winning and losing!
Join Lulu and Max as they help Bear-Bear, Goosey, Coyote and the rest of their animal friends in the Field Day contests determine who will be the leader of Lulu’s forest.
But as the animals soon find out, not everyone can win. Sore losers, unkind winners, flaring tempers, and a few tears are taking the fun straight out of Field Day!
Just like Lulu and Max help the animals navigate the ups and downs of the day, with Win or Lose, I Love You parents will be equipped to help children:
- Replace the selfish characteristics of competition with an understanding of how to treat others fairly
- Overcome the tendency to display poor sportsmanship by using Biblical truths to develop a Christ-like attitude
- Reject the labels of winning and losing and embrace that they are loved no matter how they perform.
- Win or Lose, I Love You will show your child that, no matter what, their value is tied to who they are, not how they play!
What did I think of this book:
I just received this book in the mail this afternoon and had to read through it right away. I love Lulu in a Tuto and Max. They are some cute little kids. All the animals characters were cute as well, even if some did not act so cute all the time. The story in this book is a good way to teach your little one learn how to be a good sport and to know that even if you do not win you are still loved and a good person. The illustrations were very cute and done with a nice range of colors to make them come off the page. I can't wait to share this with my little niece and nephew. Especially now that my nephew is in kindergarten and playing hockey. I think it will be a good book for him.
