Boys and girls both love and relate to Danny, while enjoying the interactive nature of the book–they never know what will come next! Parents and Teachers love the social-emotional skills the book teaches through empowering kids to make positive choices while demonstrating the natural consequences to negative choices. A "must-have" on every bookshelf.
I have been teaching for 7 years and I have never seen such an amazing response to a book. Students are begging to read it over and over again. I loved the ability to make choices and talk about the outcomes. I loved how sometimes Danny’s brother egged him on and we could talk about not having control over someone else and only having control over how you respond. I loved that when Danny asked for a snack he didn’t get chocolate and we could talk about "getting what we want" versus "making a good choice." I also love the forgiveness from Danny’s parents when he has a bad day and the encouragement to make the next day better. I love this book! —Kirsten Leigh, Elementary Teacher
This book empowers kids to make positive choices while showing them the natural consequences of negative choices. It’s a great book for teaching the pillars of character and also a wonderful resource for teaching growth mindset. It’s a book that you will use over and over… I highly encourage you to add it to your bookshelves. —Marida Salinas, Elementary School Counselor
This book is a perfect fit for anyone trying to teach kids about responsibility and about the power of their choices. The kids are able to clearly see how their choices influence the type of day that they have. I highly recommend this book to every parent, teacher, and principal! —Karyl Strader, Elementary School Principal
