Poem: I can Choose

I know it's up to me

I like the photographs and bright illustrations in this book of poems about behavior for adults to share with children. I think that children will enjoy many of these poems. The book also includes a guide for teachers, parents and other adults explaining the social skills addressed by the poems, and giving ideas for activities that could be done using the poems.
