Children are entitled to their feelings even when their behavior needs to be
corrected. This series acknowledges specific feelings and offers
children several ways to deal with them. Each book features a choose-your-own-adventure
format, and shows what different outcomes of choices might be—allowing the children to
back up and try another solution if they don’t like the outcome, or to try a variety
of choices to see how each might turn out.
