Stuff Happens Tom by Pat Flynn
Published by Penguin Books Australia
I read Tom a book in the Stuff Happens Series. The main character is Tom a school boy who loves playing tennis. He plays it all the time and is very competitive. He wants to be the best tennis player, but when he loses against another boy named Zac, he needs to learn to not only practice playing but also learn to win in his head. With his teacher’s help and the school counselor too, he learns some special ways to imagine being a great player.
I enjoyed this book, even though I don’t know much about tennis. I thought the drawings on the last page of every chapter that show a scale on how Tom was feeling, was very good. I also liked learning how you can train your brain to think winning thoughts.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sport and would like to learn more about how professionals use their thoughts to get better. Thumbs up!
