Another 5-star Review for The Golden Rule Coloring Book by Readers Favorite

Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite

There’s a very special rule we should all follow. It’s really worth well more than your weight in gold, or the weight of the world, for that matter. It’s called the Golden Rule. It’s all about treating others the way you would like to be treated. In other words, be kind, caring, and considerate at all times. Help others, share what you have, and just be nice.

Sherrill S Cannon’s picture book/coloring book story, The Golden Rule Coloring Book, is a clever way to teach young readers how to be kind to others while, at the same time, entertaining them and making them think about this ‘kindness’ treasure they have within themselves. The story is told in rhyming verse as two siblings go searching for what they believe is gold and has something to do with a rule. Knowing how young people hate rules (don’t we all), this introduces the idea that there might be some good rules to consider. The story part of the book is accompanied by a colorful illustration while the next page is a coloring page for young readers to color as they wish, using colors they think will appropriately and efficiently describe what they’re feeling and their comprehension of the concept of the ‘golden rule.’

This interactive activity is continued at the end of the book where the author provides questions to make young readers think more deeply about the concepts presented in the book. Children love to color and create beautiful pictures; they also love to talk about their feelings as they work hard to learn important concepts about life. This book combines both in a comprehensive and entertaining way of teaching young people to be kind to others: “treat others the way you would like them to treat you.” What could be more simple?Another

New Feathered Quill Review for The Golden Rule Coloring Book

Award-winning author Sherrill S. Cannon allows young readers to color their own story in The Golden Rule Coloring Book, the accompaniment to her best-selling children’s story The Golden Rule. This story asks a very simple question: what kind of world would we live in if everyone treated others the way they’d like to be treated?

Cannon’s story begins as Robert and his sister, Kait, search for an important golden ruler. They hunt all over their school without success. Kait realizes that perhaps this golden ruler they are seeking is not the kind of ruler that you use to measure things, but rather a rule that you live by. They come to recognize that the rule they are trying to find is instead The Golden Rule, which declares we should treat others the way we would like to be treated.

The author offers numerous examples of situations in which kids might find themselves, and offers strategies explaining how kids could apply The Golden Rule to these scenarios. Finally, the book closes with a challenge for the readers to remember to use The Golden Rule every day and in doing so, making themselves and the people around them happier.

The Golden Rule Coloring Book is distinctive for several reasons. Cannon’s story is written in rhyme, a style which is often loved by children. Kids who read books written in rhyme are more likely to be able to memorize the story, and consequently, become familiar with the content and retain what they read.

Another unique characteristic of this book is that while it is a coloring book, the black and white drawings are accompanied by a story. Kids who read this book will be able to enjoy not only the narrative itself, but they will also be able to bring the tale to life by coloring their own version of the story. This allows The Golden Rule Coloring Book to be much more interactive than average coloring books. This is a concept that appears to be new and notable, and one that kids will surely adore.

Quill says: With The Golden Rule Coloring Book, Cannon appears to have written another memorable tale for young readers. The rhyming story teaches children valuable lessons about good manners and respect for others. Parents will appreciate the excellent morals that Cannon imparts with her story, while kids will love being able to ignite their own creativity as they color the accompanying pictures.
