    1 thought on “Bella's Rules”

    1. A nice story about a little girl who does as she pleases. But when grandma comes with a puppy, Bella starts to realize that when you don't follow the rules, things get messy. It is a little far-fetched to think a little girl is going to figure out all on her own how to train a puppy, but it's a nice idea and could work as a teaching story to kids who don't like to follow the rules.

    2. The reason why we can't all have our own rules. A story about friendship and learning to follow the rules.

    3. Bella’s Rules, a story written by Elissa Haden Guest, is a story about a little girl named Bella who knew all the family rules. She, however, liked her own rules much better. She liked candy for breakfast, no bedtime, and being in charge of everything. Bella gave her babysitter a run for his money. She was not cooperative and when her parents came home they had to talk to her about their rules. Bella wrote a note to her babysitter apologizing. Her parents invited her grandmother to visit and h [...]

    4. In the vein of Eloise and Marley, here's an adorable tale of two well-intentioned rule breakers who show each other how friends deserve to be treated Bella knows her family's rules by heart, but she much prefers her own: Candy for breakfast, no hair-washing, and no such thing as bedtime. And then . . . Bella the wild child gets a new pet! At first, Bella and Puppy are the very best of friends. But when it turns out that Puppy doesn't like the family rules either (including the rule not to gnaw o [...]

    5. The adorable illustrations by Halpin will win you over in a second. But don’t let that and the title (which is the same as the name of the character) fool you. Though lovely to look at, Bella is a nightmare. As you open the book and start the story, you can clearly see that the household has rules, but Bella chooses to disregard them. When Sammy, the boy next door and occasional babysitter comes, she behaves wildly. Truly a terrible child. Then granny comes to visit, bringing along a present f [...]

    6. Ugh. I got this book free from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, but I will be re-gifting it or donating it. I don't much like Bella, who is an out of control little brat and won't listen to her parents or babysitter. They give her a puppy, so she can teach the puppy rules. I feel the author missed the chance to drive home the point that Bella learned that rules are important through training her puppy. It's just not clear in the end that she learned the abstract lesson her parents intended. N [...]

    7. My 3 year old granddaughter received this as her Dolly Parton Imagination Library month book. It was an okay book, in my opinion. The lesson was 'there' but I didn't feel like the story brought it full swing as well as it could have been. A little girl is being naughty and wants things her way "her rules" and doesn't want to mind her parents. She gets into trouble when the babysitter sits with her one night. Her grandma brings her a puppy and in taking care of her puppy she learns that rules are [...]

    8. What kid doesn't have their own set of rules. Bella has her own set of rules that her parents don't approve of but Bella doesn't see anything wrong with her rules until she gets a puppy and he seems to have his own set of rules too.This is a good book to teach children that you can have fun but at the same time there are times when rules are needed. The illustrations are very cute and colorful with not your traditional colors that you tend to see in books so it was very refreshing to see. Overal [...]

    9. Bella doesn't like to follow the rules--then she has to teach some rules to her new puppy. My middle child (currently 3), who also doesn't like to follow the rules, adores this book. I found the story only so-so, but I thought the pictures were beautiful. It's not entirely clear that Bella learns to follow rules in the end. However, the pictures of her exploits, and later of her parents helping her to train her puppy, were all very sweet.

    10. It's like they stole my life! I also have a best friend named Puppy, but he's a stuffed animal. He even looks a little like the real dog in this story. And he does some of the same things, too! I checked this out of my town's library and was surprised and happy to see it was donated by the family of a teacher at my school in memory of her little girl who died in a car accident.

    11. "Bella's Rules" is a cute story about how an unruly little girl learns a lesson about behavior from her dog. Little Bella doesn't understand why her parents don't like her rules until she gets a puppy who behaves the same way that she does. The book ends with both Bella and the puppy behaving better and being rewarded. I liked this book and would recommend it.

    12. Bella knows the house rules, but she loves her own rules even more! She becomes a handful, and her parents think of an atypical way to help her learn how to behave properly.This was an interesting story, and the characters are likable despite being troublemakers at times. Great illustrations!

    13. Bella has trouble following the rules, but when she is given a puppy she is challenged to establish boundaries and enforce them. Illustrations were rendered in watercolor, graphite, colored pencil and finished digitally. PreK-2.

    14. Love this book and love little Bella. Great for real conversations in the classroom about rules, why we have them, how we break them, forgive and fix.

    15. What to do with a wild child who wants to break all the rules? Sweet illustrations and a story that will be useful to some families.

    16. A young girl has to learn about rules as they apply to her and her new puppy. Fun story and sweet art.

    17. I think this would be a good book for a child to realize the responsibilities of owning a pet. A good book for a beginning reader.
