What if you treated others the way you’d like to be treated? What if everyone did that? What kind of world could there be?

Robert and Kait decide to look for the golden ruler that their Mom has told them about, only to find out that she meant RULE instead of ruler.

What is this “Golden Rule” and what does it mean?

Join in the children’s quest to discover how to follow the Golden Rule and share it with others, as you meet many classroom friends from the author’s previous books.

Opening Lines

“We need to start looking for something that’s great,”

Said Robert, while talking to his sister, Kait.

“For there is a ruler Mom says is quite old.

It must be important – it’s made out of gold!

I think we should look for that wonderful rule.

If it’s not here at home, perhaps it’s at school.

Made out of gold, well it must be quite nice,

And if we could find it, we’d get a good price!”

What is the Golden Rule

So Kait then asked Rob if he thought it could be

A new kind of ruler that they might not see.

Rob thought a minute and then smiled and said,

“It’s not a ruler . . . . It’s rule, instead! 

That’s why we can’t find it – it’s not just at school.

It’s not a school ruler, or measuring tool . . .

It’s a rule that you live by, to give and to share,

A way to treat others to show that you care.
