5.0 out of 5 stars You Choose 19 Aug 2006
By jenny g
Our 5 year old daughter has hardly put this book down since choosing it from a book shop 3 weeks ago. Great for make-believe and imagination - she loves to pretend to be different characters and choose houses, clothes, friends, pets, jobs etc accordingly. She encourages everyone she meets from age 2 to 90 (just about) to share the book with her and choose what they would like to be and do. The illustrations are bright and colourful and great for vocabulary building and just for fun too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of fun on every page 13 Dec 2005
You Choose is one of the best children's books I have ever seen. It allows young children to interact at story time from a very early age and has allowed me to read one "story" to all my children at once - all four are under 5. They can each take turns at choosing an item on each page and then you can get them to describe it - helping them to develop their vocabulary in an extremely fun way. Each page is crammed with images - all different and all with a story that you could tell about each one. You can spend a few minutes at bed time with it or hours if you have the energy and patience. My 3 and 4 year old also love to just sit and pour over all the pictures and make up stories associated with each one. It is trully fabulous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 22 Mar 2005
This is an absolutely excellent book for children aged 3 up. It offers fantastic illustrations and the opportunity to disuss lots of different topics in a really fun way. My son particularly enjoys choosing different houses to live in and different jobs to do. It really helps to improve pre schoolers vocabulary of subjects like professions, different clothing and transport. A real must for all inquisitive children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of Fun 12 Mar 2007
My 2 year old got given this book by a friend. So many hours were spent going through this book, from places her would go, where he would live, what he would eat and who his favourite animal is. The book was so well loved, that this is my second copy after the first one wore out! My sons vocab has improved so much and knows words and recognises things that older kids in his nursery class don't. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars a first class idea that entertains all ages 1 Mar 2005
My children and I love this book - its such a simple concept but I haven't seen any other book trying to do the same thing. There's no story as such - instead the reader picks from double page spreads packed with choices who they'd like to be, where they'd like to live and what they'd dress in, eat and do. There are endless possibilities. You can do the book quickly or really take your time as there are so many options to spot - and there's plenty of room for amusement when the two-year old terror chooses a sister that's a witch, Father Christmas for mummy and dresses daddy in a fairy costume to climb into bed with a wolf. Though of course the child can follow a more everyday route through the book. This is a book to grow with children inspiring them to make up their own stories in many different ways and settings. Fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars My girls love this book! 26 May 2004
By A Customer
My two little girls (aged 3 and 6) love this book. We read it almost everynight. The 3 year old also spends a lot of time looking at it by herself as there aren't many words. The book itself is a large picture book, so it is easy to read to both of them. The book starts off with asking where do you want to live and has a full two pages of options, drawn flowing from one habitat to another(from jungle to waterfalls, country, city, beach etc) The art work is simple black line drawings filled in with bold color. Each page then goes on to let the kids choose their friends and family(from many diverse pictures in frames) and choose where to live(again a wide range of choices), what to wear, eat and drive. It is a great book and I highly recomend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to share with children of all ages! 11 Mar 2006
By A Customer
A friend of mine, who reads this book with her three year old daughter, suggested it for sharing with the children who I work with. They have low self esteem and suffer from emotional problems. It is a new way for them to share with me their views on what they would like to change in their lives or how they would like things to be.I can read it with all of the children from 4-13 and I am sure they will all benefit greatly as will my team.
