When Daddy wins, he gets to shout ‘Woof Woof – I win!’. Liam does not like it when he doesn’t win.
In Liam Wins the Game, Sometimes, lovable Liam learns that it is ok to feel disappointed if you don’t win, but that it’s not ok to moan or cry or throw things: sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t. He learns how to become a good sport, and that makes him a real champ!
