Audisee® eBooks with Audio combine professional narration and sentence highlighting for an engaging read aloud experience! Are you a good teammate? Do you try your best? Do you follow rules and play fair? We don't have to be the best at every sport to have a good time. Trying our best will make the game way more fun! Pairs with the fiction title Dev Tries His Best. Explore these and other ways to be a good sport with these fun books! "The Be a Good Sport series utilizes both fiction and nonfiction titles to introduce the concept of sportsmanship to the earliest readers. Conveniently, volumes can be paired to approach similar topics. The fiction title Reiko's Team makes a natural pairing with the nonfiction title Being a Good Teammate. The former features a series of colorfully illustrated double spreads showing a girl playing soccer and performing common moves, each of which is paired with a simple sentence, e.g., 'Reiko throws the ball to her teammate' (with only the verb changing from page to page; Reiko also passes, rolls, and kicks the ball to her teammates). The nonfiction companion book takes a nearly identical approach to its topic, utilizing photography instead of artwork. The fiction title Your Turn similarly pairs with the nonfiction Playing Fair; the first illustrates a boy and girl on a playground, taking turns on the slides, swings, and such, while the second gives a series of examples of how to 'play fair,' as when sharing or taking turns. Each volume concludes with a question prompting readers to consider times they've applied these concepts in their daily lives, plus a picture glossary of basic vocabulary (e.g., ladder, slide, swings). Series-wide, the illustrations are careful to include a racially diverse cast. An appealingly minimal primer on the fundamentals of sportsmanship and social-emotional learning."-Booklist
