A story that teaches kids to think before they act.

As he gets ready to jump from a high branch, rustling leaves and a warm voice help this adventurous boy to think before he leaps. Before long, he learns how asking "What if?" (and thinking through consequences) can keep him from all sorts of trouble.

"If you'll hurt yourself, hurt someone else, or make your momma mad, you might need to change your action."

What if? is based on real situations kids face while growing up, so children can relate the story to their own lives, while they pick up some lessons about responsibility and respect. The kindly mulberry tree helps children develop the self-awareness and social emotional skills they need to make good choices.
