I Didn't Win

Mrs. Wineberg, our very own 2nd-grade teacher, and Olympic Gold Medalist has written a children's book titled "I Didn't Win". This book uses her past experiences to show young readers that goals can be set! Readers learn about goal setting, determination, and believing in themselves. Beautiful and colorful illustrations allow readers to imagine themselves in the story while learning valuable lessons. Readers will learn a new definition to the word success. I Didn't Win, gives a message of hope, and teaches youth of today that there is more than winning. It is also important to Mrs. Wineberg that children are reading!! Please encourage reading over the summer with your kids!

Mrs. Wineberg will be hosting a FB LIVE virtual reading of the book tomorrow, June 27th, at 11am. Anyone interested in purchasing can go to Amazon.
