Award-winning creators, author Ilene Cooper and illustrator Gabi Swiatkowska, present a deluxe picture book edition of the classic story that champions the principles of kindness in The Golden Rule.
Foreword by New York Times bestselling author John Green
This deluxe edition of The Golden Rule spreads the message of kindness to a new generation. But what does it really mean? And how do you follow it? A grandfather explains to his grandson that the Golden Rule means you “treat people the way you would like to be treated. It’s golden because it’s so valuable, and a way of living your life that’s so simple, it shines.”
The book reveals versions of the Golden Rule found in many cultures and religions, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Islam. Following the Golden Rule is something everyone can do, which means that every person—old or young, rich or poor—can help make the world a better place.
