As you read these stories together, notice the star hidden within the illustrations (you will also see him throughout this site!) We call him Ziggle. Ziggle appears when a choice point has occurred – the moment when a decision is needed. When wise, thoughtful decisions are made, Ziggle is happy and bright. When poor choices are made, he looks dim and deflated. Notice how his mood changes! Take some time after you read the story to help your children think of choice points in their own lives. Look for ways to involve them in your day-to-day decisions, and, when appropriate, allow them to make their own choices. Talk about consequences and how one decision will impact another. Choose Right and Shine Bright!
