This privately published book is one of Lovereading's bestsellers. Every parent who we have shown it to has bought a copy. Furthermore a Primary School Head, having seen it, said "Every primary school child should read this book" - and she promptly bought 8 copies! This simple but important message combined with the quirky illustrations by Ian Dicks make this book easy and fun to read and understand.
As you would expect from the title, and the philosophy it espouses, the authors and Lovereading would like to offer THE whole book for parents and children to read online (preferably together).
We live in a fast-moving, multi-racial, multi-cultural society which bombards our children with thousands of complicated images and messages every day. Although they are highly 'media literate' and 'media critical', today's children don't have the time and patience to read the 'old style' imaginative children's books previous generations used to love.
Yet don't the traditional moral and behavioural lessons still apply? And couldn't they be expressed in a simpler, more direct way - regardless of our children's background or heritage?
This delightful little book, with illustrations by the popular Ian Dicks, brings meaning to the saying 'Do As You Would Be Done By' and, in a very simple way, will help today's children learn how to behave in a complicated world.
But don't just read the words. The fun is in the pictures!
