By Alan Williams
I placed Little Teammate on my "Children's" shelf, but I could have just as well placed it on my parenting shelf, or coaching shelf, or baseball shelf, or "winning" shelf. Alan Williams delivers a simple mantra parents would do well to memorize and implement. I have coached five sons in baseball, coached Jr. High and JV Basketball, and watched a daughter play competitive soccer though college. And I have witnessed too many parents (myself included at times) go overboard in their efforts to "bring out the best" in their student athlete. Without preaching or moralizing, Williams points us to a better way. The illustrations by Stephen Marchesi are stellar too.
