This book features three pick-your-path stories about Stretch More, a rubber-band character who loves video games and skateboarding, but also has behavior issues that frequently get him in trouble. Stretch is very inflexible!
If you know a child like Stretch--one who has difficulty adapting to changes, handling frustrations, and problem solving--then The Adventures of Stretch More can help! At key decision points in each story when Stretch could choose to be flexible or not, readers take control and decide how Stretch reacts, then turn the page to see the consequences of his behavior.
