The importance of grit
Research has shown that kids that have the ability to persevere, (moreso than kids who are naturally gifted, or born into affluent homes) are the ones who succeed. Take a look at the TED talk about Grit. This book takes a lot of those important ideas and simplifies them to teach the importance of the quality to young kids.

I'm slowly collecting this whole series of Diggory Doo books by Steve Herman. This book on Perseverence touches on the idea that embarrassment may be core feeling behind losing. Even my poorest sports don't get defensive when I read this book to them.
