Do you know a kid who "rules"??
If you have a kid on your gift list this year who has a vivid imagination, I have the perfect book for you to give them. You Rule: Create Your Own Country by Scott Forbes and Emma Laura Jones allows children to do just that. They'll decide how big their country is, design a flag, devise ways to attract people to their country, make the rules, decide on a style of government, and more! Perfect for kids with dreams of being king or queen someday!
Lonely Planet's books like these offer a perfect mix of fun and learning opportunities. Your child's imagination can run wild with this one, and they'll learn a little something along the way, too.
I recommend this book for kids aged 9 to 12. There's a lot to read and absorb (lots of great information!) but it's all presented in a fun and interesting way.
