Evie loves to run, jump, hop and most of all - win! In fact, she has a special place in her room for all her trophies and ribbons. Evie couldn’t wait to blaze past her classmates on Field Day.
So when things didn’t go her way, she stomped, scored, and downright pouted! Evie was a sore loser, alright.
When Evie finds herself ahead of the pack and faced with an important decision, will she choose the chance at a trophy or the chance to be a kind friend?
Find out by joining Evie as she navigates the playground and learns that some things in life feel better than winning.
Evie’s Field Day by Claire Annette Noland carries the key message of empathy, winning the right way, and good sportsmanship supported by the many advocates of positive parenting solutions. It'll sit comfortably on your shelf alongside other books that focus on these issues. This includes the work of Sharon Purtill (It’s Okay to Be Different) and Derek Munson (Enemy Pie).
This book comes with a free Reader’s Guide for children ages 4-10, complete with discussion questions, lesson plans, and activities to go beyond the book. Prompts ask children to consider how they can exhibit good sportsmanship, on and off the field.
