You're in Trouble: Fib or Truth?

(4) K-3 Making Good Choices series. Illustrated by Victoria Assanelli. In each Choose Your Own Adventure–style lesson book, readers determine a focal character's behavior in a challenging situation: Does Kendra come inside when her father asks, or does she whine and cry (Angry)? The opportunity to make choices seems empowering, but the parental lectures that characters receive ruin the fun. The culturally diverse cast of protagonists often look frozen in place. Reflection questions are appended. Review covers these Making Good Choices titles: You Can Control Your Voice, You Can Handle Conflict, You Can Listen to Directions, You Can Stay in Control, You're Angry, and You're in Trouble.
