For Kids and Their Grown-Ups

You Rule” by Rilla Alexander

Review by Laura Frantz, collection development librarian

How ready are you? How much do you know? How long will it take? And so on are some of life’s biggest questions for kids. “You Rule” presents a clever and colorful way to measure what is seemingly immeasurable.

Author and illustrator Rilla Alexander’s newest picture book asks some heady questions. But it also provides a range of answers to help children and their grown-ups describe and explore what those responses might mean for them. The book features Alexander’s striking illustrations and bold colors. The text is equally powerful. This is an ideal choice when looking for books on social emotional learning. A wonderful way to spark conversation and imagination with children.
