Reviews from Around the World
"This cute, funny picture book will be great to read on the first day of school, when we're building our classroom community and setting the behavior expectations. Based on The Golden Rule, this book reminds young readers to treat others the way you would like to be treated. The illustrations are perfect, and according to the author, she "used acrylic paint (which she SHARED with her friends) on Arches watercolor paper to CARINGLY create the illustrations for this book. NO TEASING took place during the making of this book. Everyone involved COOPERATED, MADE GOOD EYE CONTACT, and THANKED each other for their hard work. There was one uncomfortable hair-pulling incident that took place toward the end of the project, but everyone involved promptly APOLOGIZED and have since FORGIVEN each other." - Jana, goodreads
