Book Review: I Double Dare You by Dana Lehman
I Double Dare You
Written by: Dana Lehman
Illustrated by: Judy Lehman
Lehman Publishing, 2008
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: From the author of Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing comes a story about taking responsibility for our own actions.
Silly and Sassy come to Walnut Grove to visit Sammy, one of their cousins. They spend their time playing hide-and-seek, have frog races, and play double dare. All seems to be going well until Silly double dared Bucky to jump off a high bridge, despite the fact that he couldn't swim. Was this a right decision for Bucky to make?
Overall Thoughts: Dana's story shows us the importance of taking responsibility for our own actions. We have to say NO if we're uncertain of things. Just because someone double dares us to do something, it doesn't mean that we should do it. We should decide ourselves when, and if, we're going to do something. This is a great lesson for kids to learn from the earliest of ages.
