Good Reads Summary

Grade school age children may be inspired and heartened by the simple instructions/advice found in this thirty-nine page, illustrated book.  The examples and illustrations of right behavior (helping to carry grocery bags,) offered by Shelton and illustrated by Gillespie, will give kids concrete examples of how to live out each of the five qualities which create a winner: responsibility, thoughtfulness, respectful behavior, feelings of gratitude, and a positive mental attitude.  A parent or teacher could use the book to reinforce a child’s behavior.  Matching the child’s achievement to a description of a winner’s qualities in the book might encourage the child to further imitate other behaviors and outlooks in the text.  Mom and Dad might find that the review helps improve their own daily interactions with their children and with others.
