Percy Isaac Gifford is ready to tell us his rules for going back-to-school. Only his rules tell us what NOT to do in school. Percy gives the reader his ten simple rules for going back to school and assures us that if these rules are followed, the act of going back-to-school will be a success.
Friedman’s delightful book gives children a fun heads-up as to what NOT to do when they are in school. Paired with Murfin’s colorful illustrations, Friedman’s rhythmic prose tells every child the best way to survive middle school. The rules are fun and interesting, while actually accurately depicting rules that teacher’s would appreciate students following, such as “Don’t sing too loud or stare” or my favorite rule, “Don’t slither on the floor!” A great must-read for those children entering school and feeling a little bit nervous, this book will definitely lighten the mood!
