What should I do today? 
The choices seem endless as a young girl awakes to a new day.  She will make countless decisions in a single day about what to wear, what to eat, where she should go, how will she get there, what she’ll decide to do along the way, what will she do when she arrives there  and what she will do when she returns home. The number of choices children are faced with each day gives credence to their growing maturity and need for good decision making.  The brief print and labeled pencil crayon illustrations as well as the subject is geared towards primary children.  The varying pages of coloured and then black/white illustrations adds to the mood one faces in everyday dilemmas of how you go about making even simple decisions. It invites children to begin making some of their own decisions as well as in collaboration with family members and classmates. Readers may infer choices made by the young girl prior to turning the next page.
This book is a good fit for Alberta’s grade one social studies curriculum: My World: My Home, My School and My Community, particularly with the skill of decision making.
