Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship: Winning Isn’t Everything 4/12

CLOSED!!!



Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns About Sportsmanship: Winning Isn’t Everything 
by Howard Binkow


The book introduces 4-8 year olds to concepts like respect, camaraderie, teamwork and the pleasure of playing games and sports for the fun of it. There are several free resources to support the book @ www.wedolisten.org: including the Winning Isn’t Everything song, a printable poster, lessons & discussion questions. An animated version of the book will be on the site soon. 



This is the 4th book we've read by Howard Binkow about this little curious rambunctious bunny rabbit.  I love the little lessons they teach my child about life, and doing the right thing. Giana recently watched all the stories as videos/short animated movies one day (even the ones that she read) and I think that made her connect with them more, because she picked them up the next day and read them again. 

She loved that when you click the different books there are so many resources and interactive games and things to do (and songs!) for each story. She browsed around an hour and a half before I made her get offline, but she did enjoy herself immensely. 

Now she is telling me how she wants me to buy her the "Christmas bunny book!" ( Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving: A Christmas Story  ) and I am sure I will get it for her. Now when she reads them she will be thinking about these amusing videos and actually seeing Howard be silly. Overall I think Howard is a good little bunny, but growing up is tough! I would definitely recommend these books. My daughter now owns:


  1. Mud & Rainbows
  2. Sportsmanship
  3. Learns to Listen
  4. Learns about Courage (not printed yet, I got a preview)
