    1 thought on “The Golden Rule

    1. I really wanted to like this I love the message, showing how some version of The Golden Rule Do unto others is found in most cultures and religions around the world So often people tend to focus on the differences among religions, so I appreciate a book that strives to show a kind and peaceful message at the heart of them However, I just wasn t captivated by the storytelling and the illustrations didn t connect with me either Sigh Even though it s not a personal favorite, I do recommend it if y [...]

    2. This book is a really lovely, simple, beautiful way to explain the golden rule to younger children I like that it incorporates an interfaith message and is about a very sweet grandparent grandchild relationship Not really a picture book I would use for a story time, BUT one that I would use in life I think it would work really well in a Baha i children s class.

    3. What a simple way to live, by the Golden Rule The lovely illustrations and the reference to many religions from Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, and even Shawnee native Americans, a version of the Golden Rule spans the world and touches all cultures If only everyone would practice this daily things would be so much better And it all can begin with you.

    4. But you can t make everyone in the world practice the Golden Rule There s only one person you can ask to do that.

    5. This book is a must have for any children s library It has my two most important aspects that I look for in a children s book a lesson the child can apply to their own lives and a lesson the child can observe in the world around them This book is great because it teaches children one of the first lessons about how children and adults are connected both must follow the golden rule It also does a fantastic job of connecting a child to those who may be different from them culturally by going throug [...]

    6. This book tells us about the Golden Rule, that we all know of This would definitely be one of my core books because it discusses how the golden rule is found in every culture, and specifically, every religion It s about a boy who knows of the golden rule, but doesn t quite understand what it means His grandfather explains what it means, in a variety of contexts.I would use this book for 1st 4th graders This would be a great book to show to students that we all have one thing in common to be kin [...]

    7. There are plenty of versions of the golden rule in all religions and cultures because it is a morally accepted virtue This book explains that in a simple yet meaningful way It gives ideas of how to practice the golden rule, but it also mentions that you cant make everyone follow it though that is ideal The world would be a utopia, which is accepted as impossible This book could teach kids at a young age to treat people how they want to be treated and show them how they can make a difference by f [...]

    8. This was a really sweet book Told from a grandfather speaking to his grandson, the book tells of different cultures and religions version of the Christian Golden Rule A wonderful story for little children to help them understand that others around the world hold some of the same morals as views and that people, wherever they may be, have a similar concept of how to treat others.The illustrations were quite charming and reminded me of the early Golden Books.

    9. I found myself really liking this one The illustrations are a nice complement to the text adding to it in places, and never distracting from the message.The message is excellent not only is it a great way to teach the Golden Rule to any child, regardless of background, but it s also a nice opportunity to point out that most world religions have this one simple tenet held up as the most important.

    10. Do unto others as you would have done unto you a retelling of this message by a grandfather to a grandson Beautifully illustrations and value.

    11. The Golden Rule, by Ilene CooperHow would I use this book in my classroom I would use this book in my classroom in order to set the tone for how I wanted my student s to behave This would be a book I read aloud on the very first day We would later build our classroom agreement off of The Golden Rule I would read the book Do Unto Otters the following day or even later on the first day in order to reinforce the idea of treating others like you would like to be treated.

    12. That is a really amazing book I have ever seen The illustrations are wonderful and the content are also meaningful do unto others as you would have them do unto you Which is a lesson the child can apply to their own lives and a lesson the child can observe in the world around them This book is great because it teaches children one of the first lessons about how children and adults are connected both must follow the golden rule It also does a fantastic job of connecting a child to those who may b [...]

    14.

    16. A beautifully designed and illustrated book, that has one feeling they are touring a fine art gallery If the book had been simplified, to the various Golden Rules one finds in various religions and almost no other words at all , then I believe it would have worked much better The dialogue was forced, the story so one dimensional and even preachy But, really, the illustrations are magical I am such a fan of Ms Swiatkowska and how she moves a reader through a book I did think that reading through [...]

    17. This book island excellent introduction to world religion and philosophy for children A little boy and his grandpa find the golden rule painted on a wall and he asks his grandpa what it means His grandpa explains that it is a simple rule for everyone, but one that is not easy to follow Grandpa continues by pointing out that a version of this rule is found in many different holy books Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and the native American Shawnee Tribe They then begin to imagin [...]

    18. I wished I d read this before I got into an argument with a friend earlier today a few of my favorite parts along with the rosey paintings The Shawnee Tribe says Do not kill or injure your neighbor you injure yourself But be good to him therefore add to his days of happiness as you can add to your own Hinduism Says This is the sum of duty to do nothing to others which would cause them pain how to practice you begin by using you imagination you imagine how someone else feels.

    19. Last year, John Green posted a vlog titled 18 great books you probably haven t read of course, I took that as a challenge and instantly added the dozen plus of the 18 that I in fact hadn t read to a book list on I m finally getting around to reading some of them, starting with this sweet picture book about The Golden Rule by Green s mentor from his time at Booklist, Ilene Cooper With beautiful illustrations and universal yet multicultural themes, this book is recommended for readers of all ages, [...]

    20. Thanks, Megan, for recommending this book The art is BEAUTIFUL, and in the the book, a grandfather explains to his grandson that the Golden Rule is found in every religion I think it would be a great book to read aloud in the beginning of the year to teach empathy Feeling an empathy for characters is one of the skills I teach that good readers do This book illustrates what empathy is beautifully It can also be used as an anti bullying book and to teach theme A ladder for Wonder by R.J Palacio ma [...]

    21. I don t purchase many picture books these days, but I wanted to own this It is what the title implies, a story about the Golden Rule, doing unto others what you d have them do unto you This book, however, shows how many different faiths have similar ways to saying the same thing faiths from around the world Very good book for teaching compassion, understanding between one another and between cultures and varying religious belief systems.

    22. In this book with gorgeous illustrations, a boy learns about the Golden Rule and its variations from his grandfather It has the versions from Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and the Shawnee tribe My favorite was from the Shawnee slightly paraphrased Do not kill or injure another person, for it is not another that you injure it is yourself.

    23. I can t wait to read this book aloud to my class It s a great book to read for theme, since the theme is mentioned and explained on every page of the book It s also a great reminder of how to treat other people I think I want to start the year with it next year and then revisit it later Great story

    24. This is probably my all time favorite children s book When I read this book repeatedly to my children I felt that they really got it The author and artist help us to see that the Golden Rule is the common legacy of tradition in its numerous hues of color The bottom line of authentic tradition in its many forms is respect Amos Smith author of Healing The Divide

    25. Great book all about the golden rule Ridgecrest Elementary Principal s book of the month Certainly a good opportunity to discuss an important principle as a family One thing I wasn t very fond of was that part of the discussion said that very few rules apply to adults and children I can t really explain why that bothered me.

    26. Over 120 languages are spoken in my highly diverse district This beautiful read aloud honors our diversity while helping to build classroom community by instilling the importance of honoring and respecting one another.

    27. This book tells a great story about the Golden Rule It also gives examples of the golden rule in different religions I am not a huge fan of the artwork, especially the page when they talk about bullying, but I feel like the message is really great and clear.
