School Library Journal, Series Made Simple - Rebecca Dash Donsky, New York Public Library

"Six children of diverse backgrounds face choices about health, safety, and personal responsibility. Each volume starts by explaining that choices have consequences and reminding readers to ask themselves if their decisions will have good or bad effects. Four scenarios follow, each using a few simple, repetitive sentences to describe the characters’ options, accompanied by large color photos that mirror the text. Each scenario ends with a “What Would YOU Have Done?” section that describes the consequences of each choice and encourages readers think for themselves. These sections have smaller type, significantly more complex vocabulary, and longer sentences than the others, but the accompanying photos help convey the main ideas. Additional materials include a picture glossary with definitions and a note for parents and teachers suggesting pre- and post-reading activities. These short, relatable books will be at home in any public or elementary library." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Reading Today Online - Barbara A. Ward

"Filled with photographs of the children and their pets, this book contains four different scenarios about choices and their consequences. While Wendy and the other children in the scenarios are free to make their own decisions about whether to do the right thing such as walking the dog or cleaning out the hamster cage, the fact that the book shows two different choices and then the results of those choices is liable to encourage youngsters to make better choices. . . .This book will prompt some good conversations between adults and children." - Reading Today Online
