Inside Flap Copy:
A grandfather and his young grandson discover some words posted on a wall.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
The Golden Rule. It can be found in all the world's religions and in every culture. It's easy to say and to remember, but what does it really mean? And how can you live by it?
Ilene Cooper's universal story, with rich, evocative paintings by Gabi Swiatkowska, captures the importance and rewards of a rule that is simple yet not always easy to follow.
