It was a perfect day, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the warm weather was wonderful. Everything was going perfectly for Judge Birdie and her seven-year-old grandson Milo as they were making their way downriver in a canoe. It was the end of their summer camping and canoeing adventure but then their perfect day was ruined when they saw a fallen tree lying in the middle of the river and behind the tree was the beginning of some dangerous rapids. They were surrounded by a vast forest and the chances of finding someone to help them was difficult. As they were in the middle of their canoeing adventure and summer camping, back in the office Attorney Fable Finch and Attorney Thomas Kindly were having an unpleasant fight. Will the wisdom of the Golden Rule be applied?
Judge Birdie and The Meltdown: A Children's Book About The Golden Rule And The Importance of Kindness by Kirsten Usman is filled with empowering messages that will inspire, motivate, and encourage readers to incorporate positive and good behavior into their lives. I like the way the author has knitted two stories together seamlessly, making it an exciting read, fast paced and adventurous. It is a good storybook for children as it teaches the importance of being kind, what the Golden Rule is all about, and how to protect the planet in a meaningful way. The narration is descriptive and detailed, making the scenes vivid and palpable to young readers. Storybooks like this are always good for young readers to convey messages in an entertaining way, making it easy for readers to comprehend.
