Publisher's Summary

Meet Ashton. He's four years old. He always wins at his school. He likes to be the fastest and smartest. He loves to win, no matter what! But not this time; when he tries to win at home, he hurts his baby sister's feelings and makes her cry. Ashton learns a valuable lesson of teamwork and what it means to win as a team. He learns that without the entire team winning, he cannot win alone.

Our goal as educators is to teach critical thinking and life skills to children. This book is all about the value of teamwork! A great story for parents, children, teachers, and counselors, with an entertaining way to teach kids about working together and what is necessary to win. It introduces a core logic principle: necessary and what that means. Ages four and up.
