Kait and Robert are on a mission to locate the golden rule, but they aren't sure what they should be looking for. They find a plastic ruler, but without the gold it just seems ordinary. Then the children find a book with rulers of countries, however, that doesn't seem quite right either. Will Kait and Robert ever figure out what the Golden Rule is really about?
Beautifully written in rhyme, The Golden Rule entices young readers with colorful illustrations and a storyline they can apply to their lives. I really like how the story's important message is told in simple terms using examples that children can relate to. As a parent, I loved the lessons of helping others overcome bullying and paying it forward with acts of kindness. The Golden Rule is sure to become a fast favorite with parents and children alike.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
About the Author
I have been writing poetry since before I could write! (My mother wrote down the poetry I wrote as a four-year-old.) I have written eight published rhymed children's stories - as well as seven published rhymed musical plays for elementary school children, which have been performed internationally in over 20 countries. I love to write. My friends and family ask me if I think in rhyme and meter, and I have to admit that sometimes this is true!
