Having a pet dragon is very fun! He can sit, rollover, and play…

He can candle a birthday cake, lit a campfire, or so many other cool things…

But what if he HAS TO WIN at everything?

What if he has to be the best? What if winning is the only thing that matters to him? What if every time he wins, he’d go sticking out his chest around the playground, making sure everyone knows? What if he laughs at his friends, and even calls them names for losing to him?

And what if he loses?

What if he’d make sure you hear his awful roar loud and clear whenever he loses? What if he yells at you, his teammates, his coach, and even the referee and blames everyone else for his team’s loss? What if he plays dirty and smacks other players with his tail whenever they’re better than him at a game? And more?

What should you do?

You teach him to be a good sport!

You show him how to handle winning and losing the proper way!

You help him understand why winning isn’t everything, why not brag or boast when winning, why no tantrum when losing, and how to win and lose with grace!

And so much more!

Helped our son recognize his own temper challenges

After reading Train Your Angry Dragon, we were hooked on Diggory helpful to talk about anger issues with our little guy with big emotions. The Be a Good Sport, Diggory Doo! book was a great follow up after an incident that happened earlier today. Our son immediately recognized himself in the story. It is a helpful way to talk about these hard things while keeping my son engaged. No one wants to hear a lecture about their these books are super helpful!

Great book for bad winners and poor losers

An important lesson for the "everyone gets a trophy" culture. So many of our kids are no innoculated to failure and so have no distress tolerance to manage the highs and lows of competition. This book gives some great illustrations on how ugly behavior appears to friend and playmates, and how a young person can change their attitude.

Vocabulary a bit mature for audience

We LOVE the My Dragon series. We own over 15 books & have read others. The same praises I have for the other Diggory books are true with this one-my child giggled. My child pondered, and she learned.I was excited to see the subject of the book as my daughter with ADHD is a terrible sport at playing games (card games). She had a little trouble relating the examples of chess & soccer to other games, however she is just 6. Thats my last tiny complaint. There are a handful of words in the book that I had to stop reading to explain the definition of. Learning new vocabulary is great, however I felt it slowed down the comprehension of the story as a whole. Older kids with wider vocabularies will likely do better, as well as my own child after learning the definitions.Mr.Herman is an amazing author, and so creative with rhyming to keep the rhythm of reading interesting. I even found myself getting a little tongue tied reading this particular one aloud.I hope the quality of the books wont decline just for the sake of churning out new subjects as quickly as possible.Again-I HIGHLY recommend each and every title in the My Dragon book series, including this one. Just sharing the thoughts I had on the latest addition (August 2021).
