You're Angry: Throw a Fit or Talk it Out? (Making Good Choices)
During conflict will you use your hands or words? If you're angry, will you throw a fit or talk it out? Learning how to make good choices is an important and essential part of growing up. With multiple endings, each book allows the reader to make choices and read what happens next, learning how good or bad choices lead to different consequences. In this illustrated choose-your-own-ending book, Kendra is angry that her dad wants her to go to bed. Will she throw a fit or talk it out? Readers make choices for Kendra and read what happens next, with each story path leading to different consequences. Includes four different endings and discussion questions.
In each story, children choose their own adventure in social situations: 4 opportunities to choose what the character’s next step should be. Your child then gets to vicariously experience the logical positive or negative consequences of each decision. The series’ diverse characters face dilemmas in familiar locations (playground, the home, etc.). The social interactions are common as well: handling “gone-wrong” situations, following parent’s directions, choosing between self- or other-centeredness, and more. As your child reads, they decide how the character will respond, turning to a different page based on their answer. Will Margo go clean her room or watch cartoons? Will Ben speak to the girl using a wheelchair or ignore her?
