Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
What Would You Do?: Quizzes About Real-Life Problems by Patti Kelley Criswell, illus. by Norm Bendell, poses hypothetical, entirely plausible situations, and offer readers multiple choice answers penned by girls nationwide who posted them to the American Girl Web site. Copycat friends, compulsive lying and whether or not to attend a dance at a new school number among the topics. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The title foretells the style of this small book on making personal choices. It is a series of short quizzes about family matters, friends, school and stress. The answers are not necessarily right or wrong, but they do represent different styles of coping. The strengths of each style are offered along with tips to make up for the weaknesses. The "perfectly practical" girl takes control and is not scared by conflict, but she also needs to work on understanding the other person's point of view. The answers come from girls responding to quizzes on the American Girl website, although some sound as if they were written by adults. Nonetheless they raise important issues in the lives of adolescent girls—getting along with siblings and parents (When you see your sister smoking, do you talk to your sister or tell your parents?), peer pressure (What about that 'friend' who keeps asking you do to things you know you shouldn't do?). The little book concludes with several "big truths" like "Problems don't fix themselves" and "There are many ways to solve a problem." The most significant point is probably on the opening page: "While you might not have the power to control what happens on the outside, you can always control what happens on the inside. You do this by making choices that are right for you." This little volume would be excellent for prompting discussions between parent and child in a health class, scout troop or youth group. The book is written for girls, but many of the issues affect all adolescents. 2004, Pleasant Company, Ages 8 up.

    Must Read

    Even if you don't get another book, this one is great to start out with, it helps the kids answer questions from their own point of view and lets them know they are not to feel bad about their thoughts and feelings, instead they get to see alot of kids feel the same way.

    Informative for young girls

    We have a 10 year old granddaughter who has read and reread various sections as needed. This American Girl publication makes it easy for us to discuss personal questions. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a young girl entering puberty.This book is easy reading and completely to the point, there are illustrations that are not too cutesy but easy for girls to relate to. I have recommended this book to several parents.

    My niece loved...

    these books from the beginning! Now I buy her the collection little by little. Every time she finishes reading one book, she needs to give me a report on what she liked about it, and she is allowed to request the next one. The authors are great and understand their little minds.<BR/><BR/>=)<BR/><BR/>Thanks!

    AGL/ Bendell Does It Again!

    My daughter loved this book as much as the other books illustrated by this same artist, Bendell. The book is so meaningful in content-and has stimulated great conversations between my daugther and me, as well as with her older sister. But it's the art in these advice books by Bendell that really turns her on-she even wants to become an illustrator now!
