Decision Is Yours Series

illustrated by Rebekah Strecker

Reviews and Comments

“Some books would have everything turn out perfectly if the protagonist makes the ‘right’ decision. This particular book supports good choices, but also makes it clear the good choices do not always have perfect outcomes. . ..Each book [in the Decision Is Yours series] deals with common dilemmas. . ..At the end of each page, the reader is asked to make an ethical choice. Based on the choice, the story takes a different branching path. Positive, negative and intermediate outcomes are available. Have recommended this series to an elementary school that was developing an ethics curriculum.”

“At the end of every page, the reader is asked to make an ethical choice . . . Positive, negative and intermediate outcomes are available. The potential outcomes are not sugar-coated . . . Even some of the good choices have tricky outcomes, like in the real world.”
