About this title


A soccer team is having lots of fun before the game. But once the game begins, the fun is over. The coach of the opposing team yells and calls people names. But it's his team that wins the game. As the children enjoy their postgame ice cream, a grown-up blames one of the players. Has everyone forgotten it's just a game? Sports should be fun, especially when you're in school. John Farrell reminds coaches and parents who unfairly pressure young athletes. And this picture book hits the mark, offering a valuable reminder to both parent and child.
