Overview

Willy has just gotten home from school and wants to spend a few minutes playing by himself. His little sister Maya, though, wants him to play with her—right now. How can Willy get a few minutes of quiet and still keep his sister happy? The story presents children with several alternatives for them to consider, and every choice leads to a different ending. Kids can decide whether they like how the story turns out, or whether they want to go back and try another approach to solving the problem. The story also gives parents the opportunity to ask children what other solutions might work.
