"Building a shared vocabulary of non-competitive games and team challenges has been a critical element in building our school culture. In addition to playing together with a spirit of collaboration rather than competition, our teachers find that de-briefing after playing these games gives us rich fodder to explore group dynamics. I still use my old coffee-stained copy with kids all the time."
Paul Freedman, Head of School at Salmonberry and President of SelfDesign Graduate University
"Everyone Wins is a must-have resource for educators, business leaders, camp staff and even family members who recognize that cooperation doesn't just happen on its own but that it can be nurtured and enhanced with practice, intention and a good measure of fun. Here you'll find a treasure trove of carefully selected activities that build trust, empathy and team building skills in a wonderfully clear and easy to follow manner. In a world beset with conflict, social unrest and tension, learning how to get along with one another has never been more timely or necessary."
Jacob Rodenburg, co-author,The Big Book of Nature Activities
"Everyone Wins is one of my favorite books [by the Lumours]. I used it so much when I was running children/family programs."
Danelle Benstead Till, education specialist, Alliance Charter Academy
"...I have used the concepts, group processes and cooperative games [the Luvmours] teach in my work with my family, with teams, corporations and our board of directors. Their work is life changing and Josette and Ba approach people and groups with passion and heart, as well as the "kid" in themselves."
Jan Green Bernau, Project and Staff Development Manager, Willamette Valley Vineyards
"I never realized just how cooperative activities could have so many uses."
Melissa Faith, 5th grade teacher, Chico, CA
"While our goal is to include the students in curriculum design it is difficult to satisfy the needs of the whole class. I used to find the process time-consuming and sometimes contentious. Now we just use the Values Clarification games and cooperative communication activities,(amended by the students) and success comes quickly."
