Read Out Loud WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Join Julie D’Ann as she shares her picture book WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE? It’s a story which shows young readers that we all have the power to choose whether we feel good or bad — even in tricky or emotional situations! Learn to breathe deeply, praise yourself, and take the sometimes tough decision to choose positivity. Watch and find out which you would choose!
Children typically grow up being taught to bottle or restrain emotions, not knowing that they can actually CHOOSE how they feel in any given moment. In fact, it is the one thing we can always ever do in any given moment: choose how we feel. We do this by choosing a better thought!
Each page contains a situation to which a child can relate emotionally, and then there are two options: either to choose a better feeling thought or a worse feeling thought. Just like a path that splits, a child could take one way and feel good about the situation or take the other way and feel bad about the situation. Either way, the child is still the same person in the end, but do they want to take the fun path or the hard path?
