Kindness Is Cooler, Mrs. Ruler Reviews
Bought this when I was an elementary librarian at a school with a high concentration of kids from troubled homes. Working on the basic traits of good character was a high priority, and this book did a good job of getting the kids excited about the right things. The class in the book tracks all their good deeds for a while, putting value on kindness. The kids at my school responded well to this book. A+
I bought this book for my 7 year old granddaughter. She immediately started to do different acts of kindness; at home, at school and for me. She even reads the book to all her dolls. This is an amazing book for kids of all ages. Mrs. Ruler has a great idea when it comes to teaching her students about being kind. In these times when many children are harassed by bullies, it is important to foster acts of kindness in children.
Good concept, but beware that it is a fairly long book. I also found some of the character names to be a very forced (and almost stereotypical) attempt at diversity. But overall a fairly good premise. It just rambles on and on quite a bit.
The illustrations are engaging, funny, and brightly colored. The story is an appropriate read aloud level for beginning of the year first graders, so it is helpful in teaching routines and expectations for beginning of the year.
Great for young kids learning to live together. The Rhyming format. lightheartedness, and cute illustrations keep kids interested. A lot of other " Character teaching " books are too preachy and too solemn, and especially, boring.
What a great book. I purchased this to use with elementary grade students for a unit on "Random Acts of Kindness" week. My students loved it and were able to relate to the characters.
This book caught my attention because my friend, who has a child with Asberger's, was working on the concept of being kind with him. It features an offbeat teacher named Mrs. Ruler who always speaks in rhyme, and she teaches her elementary students different, specific ways to be kind. A lot of times I think we just tell kids that things are "kind" or "unkind" without really giving them ideas of how to be kind.
Great way to introduce the 100 acts of kindness to my kindergarten class!
