Sally Sore Loser: A Story About Winning and Losing by Fank J. Sileo

“After having her classmates walk away from her during a soccer game at recess because she hogs the ball, is bossy, and cares only about winning, Sally gets some good advice from her teacher and her mother.”    [JPB SILEO]

Violet Mackerel’s Brilliant Plot by Anna Branford

“When a creative seven-year-old girl spots a blue china bird that she desperately wants, she forms an imaginative plan for getting it.”           [J Moving Up BRANFORD]

Athlete vs. Mathlete by W. C. Mack

“Owen Evans lights up the scoreboards. His brother, Russell, rocks the school boards. These twin brothers couldn’t be more different. They’ve long kept the peace by going their separate ways, but all that is about to change. The new basketball coach recruits Russell for the seventh grade team and a jealous Owen has to fight to stay in the game. When someone tries to steal Russell’s spot as captain of the mathlete team, will the two be able to put aside their differences in order to save his position? Or will they be sidelined?”              [J MACK]
