Who doesn’t love a good book?! But some books do more than others to benefit the people who read them, and Lars the Loser is just such a book. It’s a wonderful rhyming tale for children to enjoy about a boy names Lars who always finds a way to win while losing by learning, growing, and adapting to new situations.
It’s a story that teaches children that it’s alright to lose, but if you do your best and find the good in losing, you can be a big winner. Lars the Loser is the complete package with wonderful illustrations and many lessons to be learned, all while keeping a rhyme.
But there’s more to Lars the Loser than just a fun reading experience and lessons that every child should learn.
What You Learn from Losing
There is no better way for a child to learn about the ups and downs of life than from a story that is written in an interesting way. In Lars the Loser, by Ashley Statham, we find a young and cheerful boy that enjoys competition with friends. The trouble is, he can’t ever win. It’s the power of positivity that makes Lars so unique in that he finds the good in his losing, making him a happy child because he feels like a winner with everything he learns from losing.
Written as a rhyme, children can anticipate along with the story and also learn that everyone loses sometimes. The key is to accept the loss and find a way to win at everything else that comes each day.
What Makes This Book Extra Special?
Most books are read with their stories forgotten or their lessons missed. But Lars the Loser is part of a special project on Kickstarter that is designed to give young children more than just a fun story full of life lessons.
With your support, can “go viral” to spread the word about winning even though you lost to school programs with limited funding. There are various pledge levels to choose from so you can feel comfortable with your donation and you can feel great about helping children in schools that have difficulty affording books like this one. These efforts are so valuable to children and need the support of people like you to benefit as many children as possible.
You can pledge anywhere from $5 to receive a personalized Thank You postcard from Ashley Statham herself, to $1500, which can make you a character in the next Asley Statham children’s book, along with an autographed copy of Lars the Loser. And there are many other options in between too.
This initiative is what makes Lars the Loser a big winner for young readers, their teachers, and their schools. So we can all learn from Lars and his loveable losing ways by teaching children about how to find the win in every loss. Let’s make a winner of Lars the Loser.
