A Kids's Guide To Being A Winner is an excellent book for all readers. C.D. Shelton shares his thoughts about it means to be responsible, thoughtful and respectful. He also shares his thoughts about it means to have gratitude and have a positive mental attitude. Shelton writes in a way that kids can understand. I agree with his principles about each subject. I hope to pass on these ideas to my elementary school nephew and anybody I know with young children. He expands my definition of respect. Having respect does not always involve respecting other people. It involves having respect for a person's physical and mental well being. Some of these principles in this book are helpful for adults to remember. I can learn to be more grateful by focusing on what is right and good in my life. I can learn to have a consistent mental attitude by expecting positive results and not judging people by the way they look. I can learn to be more thoughtful by leaving a place in a better state when I leave it. Greg Gillespie provides great illustrations in this book. There is a picture of a person mowing the grass. There is another picture of a child hugging his father. These pictures are skillfully drawn and enjoyable to look at. This book is a reminder of the things I should do more consistently. A Kid's To Being A Winner is a book intended for kids. Readers of all ages can find value in this short simple book though.
