    Inch and Miles learn from their coach, Mr. Wooden what it really means to be successful. As they blow the silver whistle throughout the story, they learn about the pyramid of success from different animals. Hard work (ant), Enthusiasm (a robin), Friendship (monkey), Loyalty (sheepdog), Cooperations (bees), Self-Control (trout), Alertness (rabbit), Action (squirrel), Determination (frog), Fitness (horse), Skill (spider), Team Spirit (lion), Poise (eagle), and Confidence (alligator).

The poems the animals use to teach Inch and Miles about success are adorable. This would be a wonderful book to use in the library when teaching about personal skills, habits etc. You could build the pyramid of success with them. Each week focus on a different characteristic. Minuses: The text is long. It is catalogued as a fiction book although it is a picture book format. It would be best read not at the same time but in chunks.

    Second year reading this to third graders & once again, it's a sure-fire hit. I find my students eager to know *how* they can be successful (rather than us just screeching at them that they need to do better...) and they eat up the various blocks of the pyramid of success as we go through them. We read one block a week, and discuss the hows and whys of that trait. We then post on the wall the laminated picture for that trait, so that after several weeks, we have built our own pyramid of success Second year reading this to third graders & once again, it's a sure-fire hit.

We then post on the wall the laminated picture for that trait, so that after several weeks, we have built our own pyramid of success on our classroom wall. Between readings, it never fails that at least one student will ask me, "When are we reading Inch & Miles again??" Friends of mine have had the same experience - get this book if you have kids in your life; you won't regret it!

    Teaches great lessons on what courage,hardwork, and other words that children are learning mean. The author also finds animals that match the word.

    I loved how this book gave a great perspective of John Wooden's pyramid of success, but was easy to understand. I loved how this book gave a great perspective of John Wooden's pyramid of success, but was easy to understand.

    Fun read with my 7 year old boys. The story was fine considering the audience but where I found the most utility was in reading about each trait and helping them understand how they can obtain them. I read this a month ago and I try and take every opportunity I can to point out when I see these traits in them or others as I try and get them to understand how to discover and develop them. Great teaching tool for younger kids.

    Wow. DNF'd a picture book. But this is so wordy it failed to hold my attention for one page, let alone my kids. There might be some good stuff in here but I didn't have the patience to parse it. If you care to try, I'd recommend reading it on your own first and then paraphrasing it to your child. The art isn't bad. Wow. DNF'd a picture book.

    I love THE coach, but this is not a children's book. The principles taught are wonderful, but the cartoon animation does not match the text. I love THE coach, but this is not a children's book. The principles taught are wonderful, but the cartoon animation does not match the text.

    Could have a bit more detail on each section, but overall a very positive message about the building blocks of success.

    Coach John Wooden’s book, “INCH and MILES: The Journey to Success,” is an incredibly valuable story that provides children and adults with the attributes necessary to succeed in life. The book begins with their teacher, Mr. Wooden, giving them one final assignment before summer vacation begins.

The book begins with their teacher, Mr. Wooden, giving them one final assignment before summer vacation begins. Mr. Wooden has written on the blackboard, “WHAT IS SUCCESS?” and it’s Inch and Miles’ job to go out and find the answer? Coach Wooden writes, “Success isn't having trophies or toys. It isn’t a medal or friends of your choice. What is Success? That’s easy to see. It’s trying to be the best you can be!” Having this information, the boys now go on a journey with only a special silver whistle and instructions that they will find special friends along the way that are good teachers. It’s their job to ask these special friends to give them clues that will help them build Wooden’s “Pyramid of Success.” The authors “Pyramid of Success” is made up of fifteen attributes that all children should be familiar with and try to practice on a daily basis. The obvious lesson for children are the attributes but another valuable lesson is the importance of understanding that others are here to help us. The children meet fourteen special friends/teachers that all give them valuable information - once they ask for it. With this information, the kids are able to build the Pyramid. Ultimately, the story concludes with the children going on their summer vacation with the knowledge to succeed in life. “INCH and MILES: The Journey to Success” is a gem and a must for your children’s bookshelf!

    This has A LOT of words for a picture book (too many, in my opinion, for today's young readers, but this book came out in 2004 when more words were allowed). However, I liked the way sophisticated information on achieving success was presented, from a very successful sports coach and teacher who walks the walk. The animals who represent the pillars of success were wisely chosen, and an inchworm (Inch) and mouse (Miles) are partners looking for clues to success (in rhyme as each is presented).

Coach Wooden's own clues for his athletes. I also highly recommend watching John Wooden's Ted Talks for the same message for adults. Good guy, great coach and teacher. I copied his pyramid as a personal message for success to remind me to never give up (I write MG novels).

    My eight year old son absolutely loves this book. A teacher read it to his class back in first grade and since then he has checked it out from the library on a regular basis and we read it together at bedtime. It's long for a picture book so we usually break it into bits and read it over several nights, but it keeps him and his little sister enthralled and really seems to inspire them to "be successful."

I'll admit, I don't quite understand what makes the book so appearling to kids... maybe the step-by-step, instructional way it is laid out is easy to understand? It isn't really much of a story, more of a self-help book, but the pictures are fun and like I said, my kids are positively drawn to it. Someone hit the nail on the head with this one.

    Love this! It's got a great rhythm and look that my third graders really dig, but more importantly it actually gets into some depth in regards to specific attributes of successful folks. I'm a big fan of Coach Wooden's pyramid of success, but I'm finding my students are very attracted to this concept - it gives them situations and words they can wrestle with and understand, as opposed to the abstract ideas.

    I read this book while I was teaching middle school and used it at the beginning of the year to teach goal setting and values with my students. It's a wonderful, child-friendly version of Wooden's values and beliefs.
