Choices is a thought-provoking series where children talk about their emotions, and how they cope with difficult situations. The author was involved in extensive research with children and the text was built around their responses. Difficult emotions and issues are treated seriously, but sympathetically and constructively. This book talks about the difference between envy and jealousy, examines why we feel envious of others and suggests ways in which children can learn to cope with these feelings.
Althea is the well-known and popular author of many books for children. Dr Dorothy Rowe is a respected psychologist and the author of several adult psychology titles.
