I thought this book was cute and imaginative. It definitely threw out some crazy questions that I think children would find very funny. At the same time it was much different than other children¿s books I have read. Asking a child if they would rather be crushed by a snake, swallowed by a fish, eaten by a crocodile, or sat on by a rhinoceros seemed a little strange, but I can see a child getting involved in this story and being excited to answer these nutty questions.

Choices, choices. Great to discuss what you want and to see alternatives.

"Would You Rather" is a book I have used in my classroom for over 20 years. It lets children make choices and when we are finished reading it they make their own "Would You Rather" book. As an adult I love the book and have used it with 1st grade through 6th grade which all were so impressed with! Buy it as you will love it!!
