Rules of Summer by Shaun Tan

My current favorite picture book of the year is Rules of Summer by Shaun Tan. Two boys explain the occasionally mysterious “rules” they learned over the summer, like never eat the last olive at a party, never ruin a perfect plan, and never give your keys to a stranger.

And this is my favorite picture from the book. This is a great book to share and discuss with your child or class! Create and illustrate your own rules of summer! What would they be?
