You Can Choose! starts children on the path to making positive, healthful life choices. This delightful video series teaches young people valuable lessons that contribute to self-discipline, good decision-making, high self-esteem, a sense of responsibility, and the ability to get along with others.

Warm, humorous, and highly entertaining, You Can Choose! combines comedy, drama, music, peer-education, and role modeling into a lively format that captivates and challenges young viewers. Each program in the series presents a compelling dramatic skit depicting a problem situation which is very real for children. While the skits are performed by a lovable cast of characters, the problems are ultimately resolved by the children, themselves.

Each volume is approximately 25 minutes in length. A printable teaching guide is included with each video, providing plenty of discussion questions, writing assignments, and follow-up activities that support the lesson.

You Can Choose!, with Michael Pritchard, provides teachers, librarians, and counselors with a terrific springboard for group discussion, and a powerful enhancement to any character education or life skills curriculum.
