Sam is the best race-car driver in history-he is number one at every race!
But when his best friend, Maggie, shows that she has racing talent of her own, Sam doesn’t know how to handle coming in second place. Will he learn what it truly means to be a winner?
This book offers bright illustrations and a fun story about winning and losing. It is a good reminder for kids that sometimes being in first place isn’t the most imporant thing.
