The Making Good Choices Series is an interactive set of stories and illustrations designed to help parents and kids understand each other and to work together toward making good decisions.

For Parents: The Making Good Choices Series is designed specifically for preschoolers up to elementary school-aged children. Kids this age are facing some of the first hard choices they'll make. Sometimes it's not easy for them to understand what parents want and why they want it. In the stories that follow, the kids will make choices on their own, either good or not so good, and learn about important concepts that will set the groundwork for the rest of their lives. The language throughout is in a simple-to-grasp tone. The stories are interactive in two ways:

1) The stories are designed to allow you and your child to interact together. Reading the stories, you'll think of many similar incidents you and your child have faced. Share those situations and try to get your child to decide whether they made good choices and how to do so in the future.

2) Within each story, you'll see highlighted words and graphics. In the electronic version of this story, these words are "hot linked." By clicking on these, you can jump to another place for further exploring and fun.

For Kids: Being a kid is hard, isn't it? So many things to do and see, and Mom and Dad always saying "No" when you want a "Yes." Sometimes it's not easy to understand your parents. But when you make good choices, you'll start to understand them a little more each time. That's what the Making Good Choices Series is all about. The stories in this book will help you make sense of why your parents say "No", why they say "Yes" and how you can hear more "Yes" from them more often.

Following each story, kids, you'll get a chance to decide if the character in the story made good choices. In the electronic version, click on either "Yes" or "No" and find out if you made the best choice.

You'll also find special, fun things tucked into the stories:

Gold star:
Kids, when you see Reb's Gold Star, click on it in the electronic book and we'll do something extra fun!

"This interactive e-book for young children by Karen Sue Wiesner encourages children to make good choices by presenting different scenarios and asking them to make judgement calls.

"An excellent teaching tool for very young children, "Taking Responsibility Builds Trust" allows children to make choices and see the consequences. It is easy to navigate, and is most suitable for ages ten and under... Beers' illustrations are cute and colorful."

~Paula Kirman for Women Writers at About http://womenwriters.about.com/cs/childrensya/gr/responsible.htm
"The Making Good Choices e-book series is an interactive set of stories primarily written for elementary aged children. This book, "Taking Responsibility Builds Trust" is obviously about trust. A character named Reb Raccoon guides young readers through a series of stories incorporating 'the Good Choice Kids', in given circumstances and then asking the reader whether the kids made good choices or not within those scenarios.

"For example, the one of the stories revolves around a young boy named Cody and his mother, who go to the playground. Cody's mother sits on a bench to read while Cody plays nearby. But Cody has trouble interacting with other children and after several examples of his bad behavior are illustrated, the reader is asked about the kinds of choices Cody made. Doing so gives the young reader clear examples of both good and bad behavior and guides them toward an understanding of what is expected of them.

"This e-book will definitely appeal to young children, especially since it is interactive and allows the child to jump around by clicking on various links within the pages. Ms. Wiesner's writing style is clear and simply structured, and each page is illustrated with friendly, colorful and engaging characters through the talent of artist Beers.

"Thoughtful, friendly and appealing, "Taking Responsibility Builds Trust" is a definite plus on any parent's bookshelf."

5 Stars! "The Making Good Choices series is an interactive set of stories and illustrations designed to help parents and kids understand each other and to work together toward making good decisions. The series is designed for preschoolers and elementary school-aged kids. Each book has a set of short stories where the character (a child) makes choices. This book focuses on "responsibility" and "trust". This book has a boy with two stories. In the first, his choices are made on a playground. In the second, his choices are made during a sleep-over with a friend.

"Your child will read this story and decide whether the story's character made good choices or not. By clicking on YES or NO your child is able to be interactive with the story. Which ever answer your child clicks on, the story will take your child to another section of the book and tell him/her if the answer they chose was good or not. Then it explains WHY.

"The host of the book is Reb Raccoon. Reb will award your child gold stars for good choices, as well as, plant "seeds of knowledge". Children will enjoy interacting with Reb Raccoon and will read the book over and over. It is a perfect way to help children learn about building trust and taking responsibility for their own actions. A print version of the series will be released later. PERSONALLY, I prefer the electronic version of the series. WHY? A simple click of a mouse shows your child whether his/her answer was a good choice or not. The print version will have the answers in the back of the book. I look forward to the second book of this series. Highly recommended!"

"I just finished reading and re-reading "Taking Responsibility Builds Trust" by Karen Sue Wiesner and illustrated beautifully by Robert Lee Beers. It is the first book of her "Making good Choices" series published by Writers Exchange E-Publishing.

"I must say, this book is the most fascinating and thought-provoking children's I have read in years. The author has discovered a way of dealing with enormously complicated questions which each of our children face every day of their life.

"The "targeted audience" of pre-school and elementary aged school children are presented in a series of "everyday life" scenarios, then are asked to make a "choice" as to how they would have handled the situation. After choosing, they are shown the consequences of their decision, then pre
