Ownership is something children understand. A child completes these books with their own thoughts and opinions. For example, in the book My Emotions, one page shows four little frogs all with different expressions. The prompt asks you to circle the frog that is closest to how you feel today. Then explain why on the lines below. It is simple and effective by providing choices plus room to elaborate. A child learns to notice how they are feeling but is not told how they should feel. The other titles have a similar open-endedness to the pages with healthy introspection, or just a personal list of books read and sight words learned!
