    This is a wonderful read that had me laughing, crying and smiling throughout. And in the end, I wanted to be a kid again and experience recess like never before. This book can be invaluable for any 3-5th grader who is looking to make a difference at their school.

    Recess Rules by Jill Vialet is a middle grade novel about the importance of play, and being willing to take the biggest and most important risk of all, caring. After losing her parents at the age of 8, life hasn't been the same for Cassie Murphy. Now a fifth grader, Cassie and her three friends, Zee, Toni and Bryant, are trying to make the best of things but all the fun has been sucked out of recess. Between fewer students on the blacktop and Marcus Mackey’s need to bully, Cassie and her crew [...]

    Full disclosure: I work for Playworks, the non-profit that author Jill Vialet started over 15 years ago. I was a very minor editor for Recess Rules as a colleague.If you have a pre-teen child, Recess Rules is one book you want her/him to read. It is a story about struggle and determination, and how one person can improve the lives of an entire school and community. It is also a terrifically fun read with goofy characters including an angel. The story takes place largely on the playground of a sc [...]

    Fabulous story. Kids will love it. Lessons to learn and games to play. Too bad they ever have to grow up and forget how to play. Even though this particular story is about school and recess, it would be nice to see more parents insist when they are at home that they put down the controllers and GO PLAY OUTSIDE! When I was a kid ;)I received this book from the author after being selected in the First Reads Giveaway as a winner! The opinions are my own. Thanks. This one is going to my Uncle's nei [...]

    I’m very glad I read this book. It started slow for me - but over halfway through I found myself very grateful to be reading it - and it was satisfying at the end. The author is using the book to explain the value and practices of recess and play - in schools and life (her organization playworks is doing great work around the country). She makes a good and compelling case for it with delightful characters and an interesting and engaging story that goes on for just the right amount of time.

    I really liked the section at the end of the book that gave ideas for recess games. The story was really great, but the prologue made the story more confusing than it needed to be. Would be a great read aloud book.

    this book was amazing,but it could really get off track sometimesey sometimes start all of a sudden talking about a whole new thing or they stay on only one thing for way to long.

    Too contrived to have me suspend disbelief. Not enough setbacks and too obvious that we would have a happy ending.
