      In this instructive book, simple, clear sentences examine the process of making good choices. Several kid-centric dilemmas (“Should Wendy Tease Her Teammate?”) are presented, and the consequences of different actions are explored. For example, teasing the new teammate instead of being kind might mean missing out on a friendship. After two options are given for each scenario, readers are asked to consider “What Would YOU Have Done?” Color photographs feature diverse groups of children expressing a range of emotions. Back matter includes a picture glossary, notes for parents and teachers, and an index.
