Sally loves to be first at everything! She is first in line at school. She is first out the door at recess. She is first at dinner finishing her mac n cheese! Unfortunately, Sally dislikes losing and this can lead to hot tempers and hurt feelings. She even gets the nickname Sally Sore Loser from her classmates at school. With the help of her teacher and her mom, Sally learns the rules for being a good winner and a good loser, and that the most important thing is having fun.
"Mr. Taylor, her sage teacher, gives her some advice by outlining the eight rules of being a good sport. Sally learns that she needs to be polite and encourage her teammates, know the rules and try her best without showing off, keep her temper, and, most importantly, have fun....Sally takes this message to heart and is a great sport the next day at recess, even when her team loses. Expressive, cartoon-style watercolor illustrations support the text well. The parent/teacher material in the back reminds adults that modeling good sportsmanship is just as important as teaching it to children." -- Jasmine L. Procopio, School Library Journal
