Children sometimes find it hard to follow rules. This encouraging book joins Noah and his babysitter, Jenny, who shows him how rules help keep people safe, healthy and happy. Part of Free Spirit's new series of Our Emotions and Behavior books, But Why Can't I? explores these feelings using simple text, cheerful illustrations, and a light touch of humor. When Jenny comes over to babysit, Noah doesn't want to do what she says. Rules for games, rules for bedtime - rules, rules, rules! But Jenny helps him understand that adults have to follow rules as well as kids, and rules help keep everybody safe, healthy, and happy. Following the story, a series of pictures invites children to tell a story in their own words about following rules. A section for adults suggests ideas for talking with kids about why rules are important, and gently presents positive coping skills for children when it comes to dealing with their emotions. Ideal for home and K-3 classroom settings. "The Our Emotions and Behavior series offer[s] young children and their caregivers help with hard-to-manage feelings and inappropriate actions . . . The simple texts are direct, and the endings are consistently upbeat . . . These purposeful books will be useful in many libraries". -- Booklist
