Back of Book:
When Mrs. Ruler asks five of her kindergarteners to miss recess, she’s got a special plan up her sleeve. She’s about to teach a new golden rule:
KINDNESS IS COOL!
Soon the entire class is doing so many good deeds that their kindness bulletin board barely fits their classroom!
As school is preparing to start, teachers are finding ways to not only teach their students academics but also lessons that teach morals, and empathy. Kindness is Cooler Mrs. Ruler is a fantastic story that allows readers to focus on ways that they can be kind. The story follows the students as they find ways to be kind in their school, as well as at home. I loved the idea of having a kindness wall in the classroom where students can share their acts of kindness with each other. As a teacher, I was thrilled to see this story in the fall Scholastic catalogs this year. I plan on using this book during the first week of school. I appreciate that in the back of book there is a 100 item list that gives acts of kindness that children can be a part of. This is a great story that teaches kindness and shows children and adults how they can help others.
