Its a quarky and cute read aloud.
Daria
Read it to my students the first week of school while we were establishing the rules for our classroom for the entire school year!
S.M.
Some people may not like that most (99%) of the rules are written in the negative ("Don't do this... don't do that...").

Back-to-School Rules by Laurie Friedman and illustrated by Teresa Murfin is a picture book ready for release on September 28 2011. Colorful illustrations and rhyming rules of how not to behave at school are the point of Percy's prose as he explains his ten simple rules to avoiding trouble in school. Let me start right away with the issue some might have with Back-to-School Rules. The rules are all told in negatives, all no's and don'ts. Many people are of the school of thought that these types of rules are not appropriate, however out in the real world people will slip and use these types of rules rather than simply the positive rules of behavior. It is not necessarily a bad thing to show a child that different people might do things in different ways, including how to set the rules. If you can get past that and let yourself enjoy the cheerful illustrations, humorous situations and rhyming rules then you will be entertained and the children in the room might learn something. The narrator does not forget to remind readers that they can still have plenty of fun at school, despite all the no's he has listed. I think that Back-to-School Rules would make great reading for children beginning school, or going back to school, that are nervous about the prospect. It would also be good for reading aloud in a classroom setting during the first week of school to help students understand what is, and is not, acceptable behavior.

I read this book with my 4 year old grandson. He is autistic so he has been attending school for about 2 years. As returning to school is coming up I thought this would be an awesome pick to get ready. I was not disappointed. We loved the book. Percy is off to school and has some rules to share. There are 10 simple rules of what Not to do. Yes they are told from a negative point which may put some people off. I myself prefer to give positive rules of behavior. Not everyone does though. So we all have to deal with both types of rules in daily life. The text was told in rhyme and the rules, though negative, were fun. The illustrations were delightful. My 4 year old understood every one of them. He was not put off by the No's and Don'ts. They were all rules he knew and he was comfortable with them. Rules were presented in a fun way and were understood; which is exactly what I think the author set out to do.
My grandson's review: "I like the pictures. My favorite were the kids hanging from the ceiling and flying through the air. The rules are important. But they forgot one. The most important one. You don't hit the teacher. No smacking her butt or kicking. They really don't like that. I know all about that. I really like this book. I need to read it every night so I am ready for school.I think teacher's should read it on the first day."

This is a great book to read not only for the beginning of school, but for those winter breaks to remind students about school and classroom rules,

Good review of what school rules you need to follow. Good to start the year with for younger kids. Older kids will get it too.
