School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-5-This book is similar in format and style to Judge Judy Sheindlin's Win or Lose by How You Choose (HarperCollins, 2000). A well-known saying or clich? ("Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today," "Two wrongs don't make a right," etc.) is illustrated with a black-and-white sketch; a cartoon drawing and a brief description of a dilemma familiar to most children to which the saying can apply appear on the following spread. Four possible responses to the problem or situation are listed. Sheindlin's trademark sardonic humor is evident in the options. One choice is often outlandish, one questionable, and two are worth consideration. Although superficial, the treatment is straightforward without being preachy or heavy-handed. While this may not be a book children will pick up on their own, it will spur discussion about moral choices. The "Let's Talk Library" series (Rosen) presents specific issues in more depth.-Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
