Which would you do? Judge Judy challenges you to choose!

As a Family Court judge and on her popular TV courtroom show, Judge Judy has seen the consequences of people making the wrong choices. She knows that a sense of morality is developed at an early stage, but parents often need help teaching their kids how to make good decisions. Judge Judy Sheindlin's Win Or Lose By How You Choose! is the answer.

In her first book for children, Judge Judy asks kids questions that reflect dilemmas they're faced with every day, such as what to do when you borrow a friend's bike and accidentally break it. But she doesn't tell kids what to do — she provides a series of multiple choice answers and asks them to decide which is the right response. Judge Judy encourages parents and children to talk through the answers together, exploring the choices and examining the consequences of each course of action.

Along with Bob Tore's hilarious artwork, Judge Judy's witty, wise questions and answers challenge kids to make winning choices — for life!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The star of her own TV courtroom on the syndicated program Judge Judy, Sheindlin here pens her first book for children. Brief author's notes for parents and for kids introduce 36 open-ended multiple-choice questions designed to encourage discussion between a parent and child concerning decision-making and discerning right from wrong. Each question supposes a protagonist in a sticky situation ("All your friends are smoking. They are making fun of you because you are not. You should "; "You are home alone and someone knocks on the door. You should "). A list of four possible plans of action follow each scenario. The choices introduce several gray areas, and in some cases more than one answer could be right--it would be up to the parent to discuss with the child which route they would prefer their son or daughter to take. For instance, the knock-on-the-door example offers both "A. Not answer the door" and "B. Ask who it is and open the door only if you know him or her"--the "correct" answer would depend on how the parent has instructed the child to act. Sheindlin, uncharacteristically, refrains from handing down her decision here, or describing what goes into the decision-making process. Her assortment of situations demonstrates a familiarity with her audience and the issues they face, but the volume is designed to work best when an adult reads it with the child. Chipper cartoon line art by Tore gives these proceedings a fun look, which may help kids see the book as more than a good-for-them exercise. Ages 7-12. (Feb.)

I was dubious of Judge Judy Sheindlin's Win or Lose by How You Choose! but it's a winner because its author wrote what she knew! During her career, Judge Judy has seen the consequences of people making wrong choices so her book opens doors for parent-child exploration, thought, and evaluation by posing a series of questions and offering multiple choice answers. Some responses are integrity-rich, others are middle-of-the-road safe, and some are obviously bad choices. In this book, Judge Judy makes no judgments and delivers no lectures. 2000, Harper Collins, Ages 7 to 10, $14.95. Reviewer: Susie Wilde
School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-The tart-tongued television judge presents a series of questions relating to issues of character. Each double-page spread presents a situation and four possible solutions to the dilemma. The scenarios range from family etiquette (listening in while your sister talks to her boyfriend) to matters of safety and security (finding a handgun in your father's closet). There are numerous predicaments dealing with relationships with friends and classmates. Monetary considerations are also included (breaking a friend's bike or finding a forgotten tip on a restaurant table). While the examples call for children to make moral judgments, Sheindlin does not come across as preachy or didactic. Her wit and repartee are evident in some of the choices (hum into the phone to see if you can get on your sister's nerves or take bets on who will win the playground fight). Each spread is illustrated with an entertaining line drawing. This title is a great springboard for discussion at home or in the classroom.-Elizabeth Stumpf, Clearfield Middle School, PA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    Super Duper Excellent

    My youngest son, age 7, tells little stories and by reading this book together, I know he really knows right from wrong. I hope this is a series.

    Judge Judy Sheindlin's Win or Lose By How You Choose

    I found this book to be a great tool in helping to facilitate a conversation with my 7th grade students. Each situation inspired a lengthy debate on making the right choices. In addition to the serious tone of our conversation, we enjoyed the light-hearted spirit the illustrations created.
