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.
