A furry, white puppy, a disaster in the park, and a surprise coin: for Jacob they all have something to do with that great big new word called consequences that Dad talked about, and Jacob doesn't think he is going to like it very much.
Will the scoop of cold, sweet, delicious blue swirl ice cream finally help Jacob see that before he does a thing, it is always best to think about what might happen? When Jacob is forced to stand by while Jenna and Cristian enjoy the balloon contest, will he finally learn an important truth about making choices?

My children enjoyed this audio book very much, and the lesson in the story was clear to them. It is always nice to have something for my children to listen to that promotes positive things instead of the negative things pushed in so much children's entertainment today.
This is a cute story that could be used to teach young children about the consequences of their actions. It is short enough to keep children engaged during that trip to the grocery store.
This story got five stars for many reasons. The lesson it taught was straight forward and easy for young children to understand. The performance was great! Each character had different voices, and the sound effects added whimsy as well as creative detail to the story. The story was not so long that children would loose attention, but it also had good pauses where you could stop and discuss the story.
As a second grade teacher, I plan to share this book with my students. I'm sure they will love it as much as I do!
