If you have never read this book before, I urge you to go snatch it up right away. It's online at all major retailers. Click here to purchase. It's fun, engaging, goofy, but perfectly teaches students about rules, why they're important, and the consequences of not following rules.

The synopsis of the book is below:
Ian always follows the rules. His sister, Jenny, breaks them all the time-especially "Don't pinch." So Ian is thrilled when the house where his family is vacationing posts a tidy list of rules. But when Jenny breaks them all, the house itself decides it's time for payback. The rug, the stove, and the bathtub are hungry for rulebreaker soup, and they've found the perfect ingredient: Jenny!

Happy teaching!
