The Golden Rule was part of the Multi-Cultural Children’s Book Day (MCCBD) and received a lovely review by The Crafty Angels.
I love reviews, especially when children write them. I received this review from Reader Views:

“The Golden Rule” by Sherrill S. Cannon, is about two siblings that were trying to look for a ruler that their mom always talked about. They thought the best place to look for it was at school but they couldn’t find it. After looking all over and not finding it, one of them realized that is was not a golden ruler it was a rule. A rule that is to be used not only at school, but everywhere.
It says, “Treat others the way you’d liked to be treated.”
It is a very good rule that will always make you think and be aware of what is around us and make good use of it. I think it is a great message for all kids.
This is a great book. I love the rhyming. It is really a keeper for all ages.
A Note from Paola’s Mom:
“The Golden Rule” by Sherrill S. Cannon is a wonderful book that kids will enjoy not only the rhyming but also the message in it.
For us to teach and for them to learn to be nice, kind and treat other the same way they want to be treated sometimes is not easy. It is a fun way to reinforce the great “Golden Rule.” Paola really loved it.
Thanks so much for sharing!

“WHAT CAN YOU DO?
But children in poor families need books just as much as children from well-to-do families. And you can help make it possible for them to have books! There are many places that you can donate books for children who need them.
I’ve adopted a bookshelf at the Sumner Bonney Lake Family Center. The Center provides services and referrals to local families in need. Homeless families, in particular, can connect with support through the Center. And all of the families served by the Center can get books for their children from the bookshelf in the waiting room. They don’t have to pay for them. They don’t have to return them…
I restock the bookshelf once a month. Some of the books, I buy at used bookstores. Some, my friends give me when they clear out their children’s bookshelves. A Good Book, a local bookstore, donates many books. And some have been donated by Multicultural Children’s Book Day and participating author Sherrill Cannon…”
Thanks again, Charli!!!
