This privately published book is one of Lovereading's bestsellers. Every parent who we have shown it to has bought a copy. Furthermore a Primary School Head, having seen it, said "Every primary school child should read this book" - and she promptly bought 8 copies! This simple but important message combined with the quirky illustrations by Ian Dicks make this book easy and fun to read and understand. As you would expect from the title, and the philosophy it espouses, the authors and Lovereading would like to offer THE whole book for parents and children to read online (preferably together).
PERHAPS IF EVERYONE READS THIS BOOK AND BEHAVES ACCORDINGLY, THE WORLD MIGHT BE A NICER PLACE... There are millions and millions and millions of people in the world.There are big people. And there are little people. There are different coloured people. They come from lots of different places. And they live in lots of different ways.But, really, we are all the same. We are all people. And we all have to live together. So, for the rest of your life, there is one thing you must always remember... DO AS YOU WOULD BE DONE BY. This means you should behave to others as you would like them to behave to you. You don't like being disturbed. So why disturb other people? You don't like living in a dirty, smelly mess. So why make a mess for others? You don't like people telling lies. So, why tell lies yourself? You don't like people taking your things. So why take their things? You don't like being pushed around. So why push others around? This is 'do as you would be done by!' And it's a great way to live!
But don't just read the words. The fun is in the pictures!
