9780060287801: Judge Judy Sheindlin's Win or Lose by How You Choose

You just got your ice cream from the ice-cream man, but he was so busy that he forgot to take your money.

You should:
  1. Put the money back in your pocket and eat your ice cream.
  2. Get his attention and tell him that you didn't pay yet.
  3. Eat your ice cream fast and tell him you never got it.
  4. Tell him you gave him a five-dollar bill and you didn't get any change.

Which would you do? Judge Judy challenges you to choose!

As a Family Court judge and on her popular TV courtroom show, Judge Judy has seen the consequences of people making the wrong choices. She knows that a sense of morality is developed at an early stage, but parents often need help teaching their kids how to make good decisions. Judge Judy Sheindlin's Win Or Lose By How You Choose! is the answer.

In her first book for children, Judge Judy asks kids questions that reflect dilemmas they're faced with every day, such as what to do when you borrow a friend's bike and accidentally break it. But she doesn't tell kids what to do -- she provides a series of multiple choice answers and asks them to decide which is the right response. Judge Judy encourages parents and children to talk through the answers together, exploring the choices and examining the consequences of each course of action.

Along with Bob Tore's hilarious artwork, Judge Judy's witty, wise questions and answers challenge kids to make winning choices -- for life!

Review:

In her courtroom show, popular TV personality Judge Judy Sheindlin always tells it like it is. But in her first book for young readers, she asks children and their parents to come up with their own solutions to realistic moral dilemmas: "You find a handgun in your father's closet." "You were visiting your friend and your dog had an accident on the floor in his living room." "You notice that the desk next to you, where your good friend sits, has been empty for three days."

Rather than forcing the "correct" answer on readers, Judge Judy provides four multiple choice responses to each situation and encourages families to discuss every answer before choosing. For example, Judge Judy hypothesizes, "You are home alone and someone knocks on the door." Should you (a)not answer the door, (b)ask who it is and open the door only of you know him or her, (c)tell the person to come back when an adult is home, or (d)open the door? Two brief introductions, one to parents and one to kids, provide readers with an approach to moral education, emphasizing ongoing communication. When young people consider and discuss the consequences of their actions, they're far more likely to make socially responsible decisions in life.

Judge Judy Sheindlin has written several bestselling books for adults, including Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever. Illustrator Bob Tore's simple but amusing black and white line drawings are friendly and inviting, keeping the tone light and straightforward. (Ages 7 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
