Sarah Gaston has crafted a cute picture book for toddlers. It is designed after the choose-your-own-adventure books that were popular for a time. She starts with a short introduction for caregivers about the importance of giving toddlers choices. Each two-page spread gives the child a choice to make—what to wear, what activity to do, what gift to give, where to shop, what tree to get, and how to decorate it. Unlike the choose-your-own-adventure stories, the choice does not change anything in the story.
Patrizia Diana’s illustrations are whimsical and cartoon-like. They really are a part of the story, illustrating the choices that need to be made.
Help Ozzy Choose: Christmas is a great book for toddlers and preschoolers. I don’t think I would add it to a K–12 Christian school library, though, unless the school has a preschool. The story is probably below most kindergarteners.

This is a fantastic book! I love the character Ozzy. He's so cute. The illustrations are very detailed and entertaining. The idea of being able to choose is great! I also like that the book points to God.
I teach the preschool class at my church, and I will be buying this book! It's entertaining and fun.
