Win or Lose, I Love You Teaches Children How to Play Fair

New York Times Bestselling Author Lysa TerKeurst to Release New Children’s Book

win-cover(Nashville, Tenn.) – Competition can bring out the worst in us, but it can also be an opportunity to learn impactful life lessons. That’s why it’s so important for kids to understand how to handle winning and losing with grace. These important lessons are taught through the spirited and engaging plot of Win or Lose, I Love You! (Tommy Nelson, September 2015, ISBN 9780529104007, $15.99) by New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst.

Join Lulu and Max as they help Bear-Bear, Goosey, Coyote and the rest of their animal friends in the Field Day contests determine who will be the leader of Lulu’s forest. But as the animals soon find out, not everyone can win. Sore losers, unkind winners, flaring tempers, and a few tears are taking the fun straight out of Field Day.

Just like Lulu and Max help the animals navigate the ups and downs of the day, with Win or Lose, I Love You! parents will be equipped to help children:

  • Replace the selfish characteristics of competition with an understanding of how to treat others fairly.
  • Overcome the tendency to display poor sportsmanship by using Biblical truths to develop a Christ-like attitude.
  • Reject the labels of winning and losing and embrace that they are loved no matter how they perform.

Win or Lose, I Love You! will show children that, no matter what, their value is tied to who they are, not how they play!
