THE GOLDEN RULE SHERRILL S. CANNON The kids were looking for the Golden Ruler. They found something better THE GOLDEN RULE. In their own way they described a wonderful way to live and be happy. Once again Ms. Cannon has struck Gold! It is a fantastic way to talk about something that we need to keep in mind every day from a children’s point of view. Told in the usual easy rhyming cadence, the book is a fast and easy read. I give THE GOLDEN RULE 5 golden rulers for great writing and an important message for every one… This is a great book for primary grades and provides a wonderful teaching moment for parents and teachers.
