About the Author

Ilene Cooper has written many children's books, including Sam I Am and Absolutely Lucy. She is the editor for Booklist.


K-Gr 4-A young boy and his grandfather discuss the meaning of the Golden Rule in this beautiful book by Ilene Cooper (Abrams, 2007). The grandfather says that it means that you "treat people the way you would like to be treated. It's golden because it's so valuable, and a way of living your life that's so simple, it shines." He explains that this important concept occurs in all of the world's religions. There are examples from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Shawnee Tribe. When the boy asks how to follow it, they discuss situations, behaviors, and the impact of everyone following the rule. This creates both a personal and universal view that can lead to classroom discussions. Gabi Swiatkowska's beautiful paintings enhance the story. Each illustration shows the diversity of the world by using symbols from the culture and religion represented. The narrator gives each character a unique voice. Background music suits the quiet, thoughtful feeling of the book. Page-turn signals are available. Since there are religious references in the book, teachers will have to consider the most appropriate way to use the package.-Ann Elders, Mark Twain Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
