Book Review: Lucia Lacorte Poor Sport

Author: Christianne Jones
Illustrator: Marisa Morea

From the Book Jacket: Lucia Lacorte LOVES games, but she HATES to lose. When she loses, she stomps and screams and cries in dramatic fashion. And when she wins, it's even worse! Lucia Lacorte is a very POOR SPORT. Can anyone convince her that being a good sport is what puts the FUN in fun and games?

Why It's On My Bookshelf: This is a good story about someone who wants to win at all costs. But sadly, the cost is losing friends because no one wants to be around someone who is bragging about winning all the time. Lucia gets a taste of her own medicine when her grandpa teaches her a lesson about sportsmanship by being a poor sport when they play a game. Next year I want to really focus on sportsmanship with the kids in our school. This is a great update to my bookshelf and I will be using it as part of my rotation to teach sportsmanship skills.
