But Why Can't I? A Book About Rules by Sue Graves

George thinks rules are silly. When Jenny comes to babysit, George refuses to keep to the rules. But that make playing dangerous and not fun at all! Can George learn why rules are important? This series introduces young children to different aspects of our emotions and behaviour. A fictional story is backed up by suggestions for activities and ideas to talk about, while a wordless storyboard encourages children to tell another story.


The books would be helpful for teaching children [the concepts of rules, sharing, fears, and sadness] as well as beginning a dialogue with children about them. Teachers and school counselors will want to consider adding these to their library as they will undoubtedly be a good resource in classrooms. --Chris Singer, BookDads.com

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
