Which Would You Rather Be by William Steig with illustrations by Harry Bliss is a fabulous book for children about the really tough questions in life: Would you rather be a stick or a stone? A cat or a dog? Rain or snow? A magic rabbit asks a boy and girl to answer these hypothetical quandaries, and I’m sure your boy or girl will be happy to provide input as well. This can lead to wonderful discussions about similarities and differences between things and situations, in addition to preferences and various opinions people have about them. Plus… it’s just fun!
