Choose Your Days
By Paula S. Wallace
This book is a picture book ( Am I allowed to put picture books on here?) , but it is definitely on my favorites list. When Corky is born, Old Bear givs her the key to her life. She is also given two lists. One for dreams, and another for things to do.She grows older and goes to Old Bear to have a little more time "for things undone, for play postponed, for songs unsung.", and Old Bear reminds that she holds the key. Finally she is ready.
