Thank you to Troy Kent, teacher and author, for the lovely review of The Golden Rule!
5.0 out of 5 stars – The Golden Rule Book of Lessons
By Troy Kent on September 18, 2016
I titled my review “The Golden Rule Book of Lessons” because that is exactly what this book is. It focuses on many life-lessons that children (and perhaps some adults as well) should, or need to, learn to make this world a better one – for everybody! I couldn’t help but think of the old saying that “you should do unto others as you would have them do unto you” while I was reading this book, but while that saying might be old the book’s content certainly is not. The author uses very relevant and current terms that today’s children can relate to like “Kindle,” and “Nook,” and “Paying it Forward.” I especially like children’s books that rhyme, so the author’s ability to present her “Golden Rule” in rhyme was especially appealing to me, and would definitely be a hit with children. Because this book is full of so many good lessons, it would be the perfect read-aloud to groups of children as it would create the opportunity for many interesting and important discussions. I really enjoyed this award-winning book and would recommend it without hesitation.
