A beautiful book for children about God's gift of free will, which Mr. Ortberg refers to as your "Chooser." Through rhyming verse and colorful illustrations John Ortberg and Robert Dunn show the many sides of the wonderful gift of having a "Chooser." The book explores how we have the option to say, "Yes," and "No," choose our clothes, food, and what we want to do, and also how our "Chooser" can be twisted by sin in ways that can hurt others.
I loved the way that the author chooses to explore free will and what our response should be to the gift we have been given, leading us to the One who gave us a "Chooser" in the first place. This is a lovely book, with lyrical verses that are at times whimsical and then profoundly deep and straightforward. This book breaks down a hard topic in a way that can be explained and shared with young children, will pictures that give a visual to go along with the poem.
A wonderful addition to a child's library that is a delight and joy to share with the young ones in your life, that serves as a great conversation starter about the choices we make and how we are responsible for our choices and how they can affect others. Well done, lyrical, beautiful, simple, deep, and concise, a wonderful book that I would happily recommend!
