The Sandpiper's Game
by Charles Boyle
The Sandpiper's Game

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.

“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.”—Joyce M. Gilmour, Elementary Teacher and Book Reviewer for the Military Writers' Society of America
