Book Review

I bought this for my 7 year old cousin for Easter. She loves dogs and was so excited to read this. My mom who takes care of her loves this book because it has a great lesson. Very well written and the illustrations are amazing.

Great book!

I really liked the point of view of this book in particular due to fact my daughter herself has a hard time accepting a loss and this book puts the right perspective on winning and losing! Highly recommend!

Great book!

We just received our order and last night we read play to win last night. What’s great about the book is the teachers you that have to play for something and fight for something in order to learn and grow as an individual. My wife and I were both very pleased with the book. When the story was completed my son looked at my wife and I and says “I want to play to win“. That put a big smile on both of our faces! We are both very fierce competitors in all aspects of my life of which we seeing in our son. We play to win! Looking forward to reading the rest of them tonight and future nights. We appreciate the hard work your team put in on this project. We thank you!

Why I Would Write a Children’s Book

After doing many speaking engagements, I was getting tired of people not taking action with the knowledge I would give.  Awhile back, I spoke at Sundance Film Festival, and on the way home, I realized why they weren’t taking action…

You can talk to adults all you want, but once their values are set, they’re set.  It’s hard to get people to change the way they do things when they’ve been taught a certain way their entire life.

I immediately thought I should write books for teenagers … But as I thought more and more about it, I determined their values are already created and set by the time they are teenagers.

As we were about to land back home in St. Louis, I said to my wife and Tyler, jokingly, “We should be writing children’s books.”  As soon as I said it, I knew that is exactly what I needed to do.

If you can catch someone in the beginning of their life, before they have specific values set in stone, you can truly make a huge difference.  The purpose of these books are to provide parents with a tool to teach their children the principles needed to be successful, in a way that they can relate and understand at a young age.
