I was looking for a new book for my great-nephew and happened upon this one. I love children's books written in a singsong rhyming style reminiscent of Dr. Seuss and this book was just what I was looking for.
The cadence of the rhyme along with the skillful illustrations rapidly engages the youngster's attention as they follow the characters on their search for the 'golden ruler,' A fun and enjoyable read, this book also imparts an important lesson for youngsters without being preachy.
My great-nephew thoroughly enjoyed it and, I hope, took away with him a valuable concept.
I can recommend this book without reservation to any who have young children in their lives
Once again Sherrill Cannon has written a wonderful story with a very special message.
The Golden Rule, penned for the young, but is much more than a brilliantly written rhyming tale. It teaches how great it would be if everyone to gave to each other what they would like to receive.
The illustrations are charming and go wonderfully with the story. Ms. Cannon's clever and intelligent gift for telling a story in rhyme that does not talk down to a child, but instead is consistently at their level is unsurpassed in today's children's books.
Kudos to Ms. Cannon for another fabulous book. I highly recommend it.
