Children, our most valuable resource; may they all be Dragonslayers!
Ten-year-old Maddie is pressured by her best friend, Emma, and her thirteen-year-old friend, Olivia, to try alcohol when the older girls’ parents are not at home. Maddie must make a choice as to whether to participate in a behavior that could eventually lead her down a path that could steal away her future lofty dreams and aspirations.
Maddie’s Choice can be read and shared with your child, opening up opportunities to discuss the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse. This scourge is a deceptive part of today’s media driven society. Children need to be prepared and given tools like this in order to fight the dragon of addiction.
