I Can Choose

I Can Choose
Ann Elizabeth Higgins

I chose this book by Dorrance Publishing Company so I could read it to my son who is turning five in a few weeks.
When we finished I asked him what he thought and he said he liked it. 
I, on the other hand, thought it was very simplistic and boring. It covered the same thing over and over again with a slightly different scenario. It certainly isn't a book I would have purchased.
My son looked at it once more by himself and then asked me if he could color the book because he thought the pictures were boring. He hasn't wanted me to read it to him since.

My overall opinion is that the book needs more life and character. Children are easily distracted and won't enjoy the book, like my son, after the first time. Since parents re-read books all the time it needs color or a better story presentation for it to appeal to children.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.
