Choose Your Days is a story about finding wonderment and joy. When Corky is born, Old Bear gives her the keys to her days and a list to mark her dreams and deeds. Corky’s life speeds by, and as she is nearing the end, she goes to Old Bear and asks for more time so that she does not miss out on anything. Old Bear reminds her that she holds the key to her days and can make of them what she will. Though simply written, the book is powerful. The illustrations are beautiful and tell a far more complete story than the words alone. The book is appropriate for children as young as three but all ages can find meaning in the lesson it teaches.
