    Winners don’t whine and whiners don’t win!

    2016

    by Julia Cook and Anita. DuFalla

    Wendell has to win at everything, and if he doesn't, he whines about it. This creative story addresses two very challenging topics: winning and whining. When Wendell has one of those days where nothing seems to go his way, his mom helps him understand that everything in life doesn't have to be a contest and that losing does not make you a loser. In fact, it can make you stronger! She also points out that although it feels great to celebrate a win, winning isn't everything, and whining about things just makes it worse."Whiners aren't winners, and winners never whine. You can't win at everything all of the time!
