Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446533076, Hardcover)An illustrated poem, this is the heart-wrenching story of a boy in a footrace hoping to win, but falling again and again. Each time he wants to give up, knowing, pace by pace, that he has lost any chance of winning and that his dad, watching from a distance, will be disappointed. But each time he gets back up and runs as hard as he can. For inhis heart he can hear the voice of his dad: "You haven't lost at all; for winning is no more than this, to rise each time you fall." As the boy finishes the race, the crowd cheers as loudly for him as for the winner, and his father's proud look is his true reward.
