Editorial Reviews

Review

Liam loves playing games. His favourite game is 'Woof Woof' which he loves to play with Daddy. When Liam collects all the bones and Daddy loses, he says 'Good game Liam'.When Daddy wins, he gets to shout 'Woof Woof' I win!'. Liam does not like it when he doesn't win.In Liam Wins the Game, Sometimes, lovable Liam learns that it is ok to feel disappointed if you don't win, but that it's not ok to moan or cry or throw things: sometimes you win and sometimes you don't. He learns how to become a good sport, and that makes him a real champ! Vibrant, colourful and lively, this book's positive messages and advice are ideal for young children wanting to understand social situations or how friendships work.

Would not have bought this if I had been able to read it first in traditional book store, was looking for a book to help teach my kids about winning and losing but this focusses way too much on the bad attitude part and nowhere near enough time on how to turn it around, it just says at end Liam is now a good sport, so somehow he magically went from not being a good sport to being one, so disjointed, not a good flow and illustrations are stick figures, not a big deal but if the story is not so good and neither are the illustrations then 2 stars is being very generous.

This is a cute book. I am a school psychologist and have used it with some of my elementary school students who have a difficult time with losing. They really enjoyed the book and definitely understood the message.

I was looking for a book to help my son understand that he shouldn't get inappropriately upset if he loses a game, or if a teammate makes a mistake - being a better sport. We keep this book handy as a helpful reminder. Very simple pictures, very thin book. If anyone has other recommendations on learning how to be a good sport, I would welcome.

Great book for teaching kids about NOT being a sore loser! I used this book in my social skills group (Kinder-5th grade) and the kids just LOVED the story. The kids were able to identify a sore loser and a great winner!

My grandson was having a hard time accepting the loss of his soccer games. After having this book read to him he is handling a loss much better. My daughter, an English teacher said it was perfect for the situation.
