If Kids Ruled the World

We rated this book:


When you are a kid, it seems like the world is nothing but rules, and those rules seem to be for the sole purpose of keeping kids from having any fun at all. But if kids were in charge, the rules would be far different from what they are. Birthdays would be every day and birthday cake would be healthy for you to eat. Beds would be for bouncing on, not sleeping in. Closet monsters would be scared of kids instead of the other way around. Kids could pick out their own clothes and they wouldn’t have to match or be sensible. They could just be fun.

Linda Bailey has written a text that will resonate with kids everywhere. She manages to think just like a kid as she writes this fun litany of how rules would change, how things would be turned on their heads, if only kids were in charge. David Huyck has illustrated this story with bright, imaginative paintings that are full of fun details. These are the kind of wacky illustrations in which one will find something new with every reading.
