Fun? THE SANDPIPER'S GAME
by Charles Boyle (My Annapolis, MD clinic host)

Synopsis: Twins Kurt and Kate are hopeful young runners who live at the seashore. While training in the sand one day, they save an injured bird from drowning. Grateful for his rescue, Sandy the Sandpiper promotes the theme of "Personal Best" in helping to make the twins and their track team faster. Better yet, he opens their minds to his vision of how to improve at whatever you do.

Review by Joyce M. Gilmour, Elementary Teacher and Book Reviewer for the Military Writers' Society of America:

Charles Boyle has shared some of his wisdom through his children's book The Sandpiper's Game. In the story, the twins, Kurt and Kate, live by the ocean and use the beach as the place where they practice running to help them in their goal of getting faster because they are part of their school's cross-country team. Their coach tells them that running in the sand will make them stronger and faster. The problem that the children encounter is that the beach doesn't give them the same terrain that they have to run in when they go inland to the hills of cross-country events. During their practice sessions, they meet up with an injured sandpiper, which then teaches the children about doing their "personal best." My "review audience" of third graders thoroughly enjoyed this book, and have easily grasped onto the concept of doing their personal best. It is a fun read and the bonus is that it teaches a needed concept to our children. Mr. Boyle has done a wonderful job with this book. This is a thought-provoking book and one that children enjoy.
