Overview

Penelope is an indecisive little girl. She likes everything she sees and has trouble when faced with having to choose what she wants. Which outfit should she wear? Which flavor of ice cream does she want to eat? Which color balloon should she choose? Everyone wants to know: "What will it be, Penelope?" But Penelope just can't decide. Not making decisions, though, has its consequences, and choices get taken from her as other people begin to choose for her, including her friend Eliza. Soon Penelope isn’' making any decisions at all. In the end, she realizes that it's much better to make her own decisions than to have somebody else make them for her, and Penelope becomes an expert decision maker. Her decisions may not be perfect, but they're hers, and that makes her feel confident and proud.

Sympathetic and funny, What Will It Be, Penelope? addresses the importance of making decisions. Children will relate to Penelope's indecision as she struggles with all of the choices she must make, and they will be inspired by Penelope as she tackles her inability to choose with determination and passion. Tori Corn writes with sophisticated flair that adults will appreciate while retaining a simple style that will appeal to children. The illustrations are charming, sweet, and at times hilarious. Already chosen for the early learning program reading list in NYC, this is an essential book for anyone living with young children or teaching children in the classroom.
