No Rules For Michael

Author : Sylvia Rouss

Available : Rented
Age Group :Children
After his teacher´s lesson about the Ten Commandments and a discussion about the importance of having classroom rules, Michael decides that school would be more fun without them. Miss Sharon goes along with his request, and the children soon see the consequences of her decision. Michael is upset when a classmate takes a puzzle piece away from him and his plans to showcase his new dinosaur are thwarted because no one will listen during circle time. At recess, he never gets a turn on the tricycle, and at snack time, another student takes his crackers. Michael´s tears show his frustration and disappointment and he finally acknowledges the importance of rules. His teacher remarks instructively, ´´That´s why God gave us the Ten Commandments. And that´s why we have rules here at school. We need to treat others the way we want to be treated.´´ The colorful illustrations are warm and friendly. Unfortunately, the lessons in this story are learned the hard way, and the book is didactic in its approach.?Sandra Kitain
