We all have choices to make every day, even the youngest children. The choices we make play a large part in forming who we grow to be as adults. For kids, those choices can include whether to be obedient or disobedient, to share or be selfish, to have a good attitude or not, and more. John Ortberg addresses the ability to choose in a whimsical way by inviting children to use their “magnificent chooser” that God gave them to make right choices daily. Parents will love reading this book to their kids, and kids will enjoy the content while learning lessons that will stay with them throughout their lives.

Read an Excerpt
God gave you two eyes, Two ears, and one nose, Ten wiggly fingers And ten useful toes.
But of all of those parts, The big and the small, Your Chooser just might be The best part of all.
A rock doesn't have one, Nor does a tree, But I'll tell you who's got one — It's you! And it's me!
You can't really see it — It's on your inside. (For Choosers are shy, And they quite like to hide.)
There are wonderful things That your Chooser can do. For your Chooser, you see, Is what makes you just YOU.
Choosing's a cinch; Anyone can learn how. In fact, you can practice Some choosing right now.
What will you wear When you wake up — you choose! Will you wear a blue shirt Or some purple-y shoes?
Will you wake with a smile Or start with a frown? Your Chooser can choose If you're up or you're down.(Continues…)
