Publishers Weekly

The publishers of this book asked children around the country a simple question: If there were an Eleventh Commandment, what would it be? The responses poured in from children from the suburbs and the inner city, from churches and synagogues. Collected here are many of the responses divided into sections on living with other people, living with the earth, living with family, living with ourselves and living with God. The suggestions range from four-year-old Carla Diaz's No punching in the head to six-year-old Tommy Chester's Feed everyone and eat together. Nine-year-old Ali Dagger suggests: Thou shall keep your body healthy as in thou shalt not pig out. Six-year-old Chelsea Stetson commands: You must be nice to your Mom. The commandments are illustrated by the children's own colorful and imaginative crayon-and-marker drawings. All ages. (Aug.)
