Meet Grinner the reluctant flying squirrel who learns what it takes to be a winner. This book contains six colorfully illustrated stories that teach how Grinner learned to develop a winning attitude and use four powerful strategies for success.

Through these stories children are inspired to learn and use four powerful steps that will help them become winners in school and life.

Step 1: I can be a winner! Children learn they can make a choice to think of themselves as winners.

Step 2: I can show I'm a winner! Children learn how to show others that they are winners.

Step 3: I can start like a winner! Children learn how to prepare for and promptly begin tasks.

Step 4: I can finish like a winner! Children learn how to finish tasks with their best effort.

This book can be used independently as a children's storybook or as a small group or classroom guidance display. Or it can be used in conjunction with Grinner the Flying Squirrel hand puppet and Blackbelt the Raccoon hand puppet sold separately or SAVE and purchase this book with the puppets for 15% off of the retail price

In this book the term "winner" and "win" denote effort and personal excellence not something achieved merely through competition. Attitude motivation and determination distinguish a true winner. A young person works to become a winner by developing a positive 'I can' attitude and by practicing effective success skills. These stories teach children that they all have the ability to be winners and that they can choose to win by doing their personal best.
