Long ago, in a one-room schoolhouse notorious for the bad behavior of its students, a new teacher came up with an innovative idea for keeping order--let the class make the rules.

    I read this book a long time ago, several times. My mom has read it to my siblings and I several times. Then today in my Sunday school class, my teacher read it to us as part of our lesson on the Atonement of Christ. It was such a beautiful reminder of Christ's great love for EACH of us! Every time I hear or read this story, I cry. This story has such a beautiful, heart pricking message and I think everyone should read this.

    I used this story to teach my family about forgiveness and charity, the pure love of Christ, one Christmas at a special family home evening. It was so tender, I could hardly relate it without many tears. I am so thankful to see this book in this beautiful style. It makes the story come to life even more.

    I knew I shouldn't have read this at work--trying to hold the tears back while sitting at the Reference desk. I remember this story being told in Conference. I've heard it many times since. And yet it is still beautiful and sweet and teaches such a wonderful lesson of love, forgiveness, mercy, and our Savior's Atonement. Love this. Beautifully illustrated.

    I wish I owned this book. It's obviously short and simple, but it is such a touching story, and the illustrations are absolutely superb.

    I've always loved this tale. We've seen a movie version of it and it was fun to read a book version.

    Though this is an LDS author I found no Mormon theology in it. It was written well, quoting bibical scriptures and beautifully illastrated.

    Yep, after many readings, still one of my favorites, and still able to reduce me to tears. Not bad for a 25 page book.

    A tender story of one boy taking the punishment for another. A tender example of what our Savior has done for each one of us.

    A story of profound charity and love, with illustrations that capture the emotion of the story as if the painter had really been there. Marvelous!
