Silver Winner Mom’s Choice Awards-Best Children’s Picture Book-Growing Up / Personal Growth
Award Winning Finalist International Book Awards Best Children’s Hard Cover Non-Fiction
If I Had My Way is a wonderful, fun story about “doing the right thing!” Children love the beautiful illustrations by well known artist Carol Dixon. Excellent for stimulating conversation about selfishness, greed, and taking care of one s health. It is perfectly in tune with early childhood classes about character enhancement and encourages the reader to think about the consequences of their actions…before they choose…not after!
