What a fun book, so much to see. My little boy has a great imagination and loves a book that he can interact with. This does just that, with lots of questions and so mant pictures to choose from. The story is yours to create. We loved it.

We love this book - you never get the same story twice - each page is full of colourful illustrations which you choose from - for example what type of house you'd live in, what would you put in your house - lends itself to expanding imagination and lots of communication and questions!

Bought this after being recommended by several friends. Both 3yo & 6yo love trawling through the detailed illustrations to choose their place to visit, clothes, friends, mode of travel etc. Not many words to read but lots of things to discuss on each page.

Such a brilliant idea for a book. I love reading it to my 2 year olds. It really sparks their imagination and helps them learn about new things whilst making a new story each time. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

This book is my favourite. You can change what You Choose each time. Where you'd like to live, what job you'd like to do, etc. My mum and I love it and it's a fun book to share.

There is so much to talk about in this book! It’s a great one for introducing new vocabulary and for encouraging children to talk about what they like.  There’s so many details- you can get something different out of it each time you read!

Love this book. Had it since my eldest was younger. Prompts lots of interesting conversations. Each page has a question such as where would you like to live? The rest of the page has lots of different places to live and you pick one. Or chat about all the different options! Great fun.

You Choose is one of my favourite books because you can choose anything that you want, so it's fun. It's exciting because you can choose to live anywhere you want to live and you you can choose a new place each time you read the book.
You can also choose things like what you want to travel on. I choose the bicycle because it's really safe. There are millions of things to choose from so this book never gets boring no matter how many times you read it.

The illustrations really stand out nicely, they are colourful, bright and fun.

Although not really a story this book is fab! We have spent hours looking at all the different things on the pages and having a good laugh choosing different items. It's never the same read twice!

My youngest & I have started reading this book at bedtime. We normally do one page a night, and discuss each animal / house etc. It is such a great book for getting kids to notice things / learn describing words etc. Even my eldest who is almost 7 loves it.

A wonderful change from the usual story books. This book is all about imagination and getting the readers involved. My kids love choosing their favourite things on every page and I love hearing the extraordinary reasons why that change everytime! Also a great easy choice for World Book day - so many costumes to choose from!

We love this book, a great way to fire up the imagination and think of all the things you could choose to do and be if you could. It's a larger than average paperback so more space for the detailed images, you go through the book choosing where you would like to live, what you would like to be, how to travel, your job, friends and family before choosing which bed to sleep in at night. Nick Sharratt's illustrations are so engaging and friendly, you can't help but be drawn in. Great for children who like to imagine what if?

Loved that on each page the child has to pick something. Eg it will ask questions like where would you like to live or how would you like to travel, and there will be lots of pictures of different things they can pick from. This is one of my sons favourite books, he loves choosing, and even my 2 year old likes to choose things off each page. Gets the imagination going as well. We will choose together sometimes and talk about what we have chosen, imagining things. This book is great, would be enjoyed by all children

I bought this book on recommendation of my little girls speech therapist. It was to help her chat away about things slightly different to everyday speech. This book has been brilliant. On each double page is lots of pictures of a particular topic, such as houses, jobs, pets, clothes and you chat about which would you rather.... Really enjoy this book and it's different everytime.

This book is amazing and one yr was in book start folders for toddlers. I think every child should have this book as it gives them the opportunity to be creative and shared their ideas and thoughts with parents,family members , friends teachers ect... they get to choose clothes, houses, furniture, food, transport ect.... it’s a great way to get to know children and their interest

This book is a firm favourite in our household! Children get to choose where they would travel to if they had the chance, what job they would do, what shoes they would wear, among other topics, choosing from the pages jam packed full of illustrations, both real life and fantasy. Each time we read this book we spot something new to look at, laugh at and talk about. A great book!

I got this book when I was quite young and I really really enjoyed it. For some reason I always picked the pink castle to live in! It's great fun choosing where to go, what to go in and what to eat. Recommended for age 3 plus, maybe younger.

I liked the wide variety of illustrations and open ended conversations. The children have favourites in the book but often choose different places to live or foods to eat depending on the time of day or season of the year we read the book. The children both make their own stories from the pictures.

This is a great conversation starter book, and a wonderful way to find out more about the workings of the mind of your little one! Each set of double pages poses a question and provides lots of pictures or a scene to inspire your answers. For example, one page asks the question,'If you could go anywhere, where would you go?' accompanied by a picture that includes mountains, beaches, countryside, towns and even outer space! I have read this with both my children, and it is lovely to see them consider the options, make choices, change their minds and hear there reasons for each choice. This is a fantastic book for young children as it does not involve much concentration on a particular story or character and really engages their brain as they think about the questions.
