School Library Journal - Making Choices Series

K-Gr 3–Focusing on the power of choices, each title offers readers a scenario and a “My Choice!” text box at the bottom of the page that lists two different decisions to make—one positive and one negative. (Will you choose healthy food or sugary food to eat?). The text centers on the power of positivity and making smart choices. Full-page color photographs with a short caption are followed by a long paragraph of text, with colored words defined in a glossary at the back. With close attention to character education, the series reminds kids that “you have choices to make.” VERDICT Consider for collections where teacher and parent requests are frequent for character-building titles.
