Written by Linda Sky Grossman and Illustrated by Petra Bockus
Part of the original I'm a Great Little Kid Series, which is published in conjunction with the Toronto Child Abuse Centre who believe that empowering young children makes them less vulnerable.
Done in rhyme, this series of six full-of-fun picture books aim to empower by instilling young children with confidence, self-esteem, and respect.
Charlene's Choice focuses on making a "right" decision which might make a friend angry.
"Maybe I should pretend Sam doesn't have the book,
But what if he gets caught when they start to look.
Being truthful is best, don't you agree?
And if I tattle on Sam, he'll be angry with me.
I didn't sleep very well last night,
But in the morning I knew what was right.
Mr. Russell would lend a hand,
I'd explain it to him, he'd understand."
