Editorial Reviews

"Keller serves up sound, friendly advice for maintaining a peaceable kingdom." -Publishers Weekly"Each page bursts with colorful illustrations and is scattered with words of different sizes and fonts. This simple story is certain to appeal to children." -School Library Journal"While kids may well have encountered the Golden Rule elsewhere, this explanation and elaboration nicely unifies what might otherwise seem like a dreary list of manners. This lively book is anything but." -Kirkus Reviews
