A collection of poems that's sure to be a winner
This delightful poetry collection is the perfect cheerleader for young athletes . . . especially ones who may not be the most athletic. Edward van de Vendel introduces readers to a world where elephants figure skate, frogs win the Diversity Olympics, and a pig quits the football team for gymnastics, even though everyone laughs at his leotard. Paired with winsome illustra-tions, the poems--sometimes silly, sometimes sincere--encourage young readers to pursue their goals, try their best, and take pride in themselves, whether they win or lose.
This irrepressibly joyful book from an award-winning team will have readers cheering for more.
