Brochmann and Bowen's rhyming, singsong stanzas first introduce the physical benefits of sports before moving to emotional aspects like empathy, sportsmanship, and losing with grace... The illustrations effectively accompany the text, with gymnasts tumbling across one double-page spread explaining how muscles grow from running and jumping and young soccer players in teams observing post-game rituals to illustrate sportsmanship. Readers will see the wide range of emotions players go through when they compete--frustration, joy, anger, and sadness--and learn they are all part of the game... A comprehensive and successful child's introduction to competitive sports.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
This installment in the Feel Better Books for Little Kids series offers a corrective to today's hypercompetitive sports environment, aimed at both kids and adults. The message is inclusive: people of all nations, ages, races, and genders love and can benefit from sports... No matter what, the authors emphasize, it's important to have fun and be a good sport... Timely and helpful.-- "Booklist"
