One of my absolute favorite new books!
Do you remember the "choose your own adventure books" from when you were a kid?
This is a new twist on that concept and it uses everyday situations that children (and parents) face everyday.
Should we sneak a snack or wait for mom?
My little brother hurt me, should I hurt him back or make a better choice?
I want to use my favorite plate for breakfast, but my brother has it. Should I have a meltdown or wait?
You're going to LOVE reading the same book over and over because it feels like a new story every time when you make new choices!
A few months ago I was speaking at a local Down syndrome organization's monthly meeting and they gave away copies of this book! I've fallen in love with the simple message, the bright colors and the modern day "differences" that we are seeing in ALL families.
So often parents and teachers are looking for books that teach inclusion in an easy way through real life examples... this book does just that!
It was great meeting you this past week!

Books I shared that can be bought on Amazon:
When I went to hear the author of this book, Tim Elmore, speak, I had no idea how much his perspective would resonate with me as I help teachers and parents build meaningful special education plans. I could write for days on the strategies inside this book, but I promise you, it's worth the read (get it on amazon here).
This is NOT a special education book. In fact, I rarely look to special education books to find inspiration for special education ideas. In my experience, the best IEP ideas come from the real world and then we tweak and modify, as needed, to help every child benefit.
I will share with you one of the biggest take aways from this book that I'm bringing to every teacher and parent I work with... Create EPIC experiences for children in every environment, as much as possible. This means checking your lessons & IEP goal work for...
What is the child's experience during this learning session?
