Horn Book Review

Mrs. Ruler encourages her wayward students to perform acts of kindness. ""Good deeds fill needs!"" she chirps, sending the children off on their pro-social quests. Before long, even ""What-if-I-don't-feel-like-being-kind?"" David is making ""the world a better place."" The book's heavy-handedness isn't concealed beneath Mrs. Ruler's cutesy rhymes. The bright acrylic illustrations display lots of energy, just like the do-gooder kids. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
