Summary: “How do you choose a favorite, a best? Which would you pick before all the rest?” This book whimsically explores how to make a decision. Children are pictured trying to pick a favorite dog, tree, cake, and hat. Sometimes they weigh the variables carefully, other times they follow their heart with an instinctive choice. There may be more than one favorite, or no favorites at all. And many times you can make another choice. “From here to the sea to the sky up above–there are so many things in this world you can love.” 32 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: This deceptively simple book could open up a lot of interesting conversations about choices we make. The rhymes are catchy and the watercolor illustrations are fun and full of action.
Cons: Why is it so hard to make up your mind?
