Empower kids with tools for respecting, questioning, and coping with rules.

So many rules! Rules are part of every kid’s day, from morning to night. Sometimes those rules make sense, but too often rules can be confusing or frustrating for kids. Rules! Rules! Rules! helps young readers understand the value of rules and how following rules can lead to more independence and freedom. A recurring “What’s the Reason for the Rule?” feature provides additional information about why adults set rules, how those rules can keep kids safe and healthy, and when it’s okay to question rules.
Rules! Rules! Rules! is a chapter book that will appeal to kids beginning to read independently. With its humorous and light-hearted tone, the book helps kids learn why rules exist to help people stay safe and get along. It also provides tips for following and surviving all the rules—even the ones that kids don’t like. Includes a glossary of terms to support vocabulary growth.
