Rules by Cynthia Lord

Rules is a GREAT book to read in conjunction with Bud, Not Buddy

In class, we've been reading Bud Not Buddy, and "If" but if you'd like to read a book related to our unit - Rules to Live by, you may want to read Rules by Cynthia Lord.

In this book, Catherine has a brother with autism and her life, as well as her family's life revolves around his disability. She is very conscious about it as well as his behavior so, she makes rules for him to help stop his embarrassing behavior.

This is a twist on our unit because Catherine is writing rules for her brother to live by as opposed to her own set of rules. Want to know more about it?  Here is a link to an interview with Cynthia Lord discussing her book.
