Know and Follow Rules Written by: Cheri J. Meiners M.ED. Free Spirit Publishing (March 31, 2005)
Ages 4 and up
Following the rules
We have rules for play. . .
And we have rules for work.
Sometimes we work quietly.
A child who can’t follow rules is a child who’s always in trouble. This book starts with simple reasons why we have rules: to help us stay safe, learn, be fair, and get along. Then it presents just four basic rules: “Listen,” “Best Work,” “Hands and Body to Myself,” and “Please and Thank You.” The focus throughout is on the positive sense of pride that comes with learning to follow rules. Includes questions and activities adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught.
Why I loved it:
This sweet book is worded so simply, even the younger picture book kidlets can grasp the meaning. It focuses on how much the children can take pride in following the rules. Includes questions and activities adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught.

I am taking a break after the A to Z. (Except for the A to Z reflections post and a blogfest) *gasp* *wheeze* I'm gonna hunker down and get some serious writing and editing done. I'll be back on Friday, May 19th with another Perfect Picture Book Friday post, y'all.
