Recently I had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of author Bill Franklin. Bill has quite a bit of writing and publishing experience, but recently turned his talents to writing for children. His first children’s book, “We Might Win or We Might Lose” was released earlier this month and is available in both e-book and paperback editions.
We Might Win! … Fantastic! Ice cream! Pizza party!
… Or, We Might Lose! …We’ll just go home angry.
think winning is the very best and losing is the absolute worst. But, are they? Reading this illustrated book of rhymes with them can help begin to put losing and winning in the proper perspective.
Sure, it’s fun to win! But kids need to learn: not everyone can win. Even champions don’t always win! On their way home from a soccer match, Donovan, Julie and Timmy talk with their dad about the issue.
If your child has ever suffered from losing an important game or match, this book will help. Its light story line and twenty illustrated rhymes will lead to some good talks about winning and losing, and growing and learning!
We grownups know that losing teaches lessons that winning doesn’t! A loss can create motivation to work harder to improve skills—in sports and other areas. When kids “get” that, they’ll better understand how to feel when they lose—and when they win.
