Reviews

Written with verve and style, this nicely illustrated chapter book delves into Cody's emotions as she wrestles with her conscience, accuses a neighbor of stealing, and tries to make everything come out right. This chapter book from the Cody series handles a tough issue with sensitivity and balance.
--Booklist Online

The narrative is lively and humorous, with plenty of jokes at the expense of adults (Cody's teacher thinks the stolen Cobra is a snake, not a bike)...Fans of the Cody series and newcomers alike will identify with Cody's dilemma and look forward to exploring her world in other books.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Told in third-person limited narration, Cody's story captures her personal struggles and her sensitive nature. Her confidence and self-awareness grow as Cody finds her way with her teacher, her peers, and her family in this gentle, funny, and moving chapter book.
--The Horn Book

Cody is a very approachable, well-meaning, and relatable character...readers will appreciate how Cody copes with family, friends, and the complications that life brings.
--School Library Journal

Springstubb creates a kind of magic in these books, with their gentle humor, realistic classroom settings, their generosity of spirit and real empathy for kids struggling to figure out how to do the right thing.
--Buffalo News

What I like most about Cody and the Rules of Life is that people actually speak to one another...Cody is a thoughtful, sensitive girl trying to cope with events and issues that come up in life including communicating to family, friends, and teachers.
--Story Monsters Ink

Short, easy-to-read sentences are full of quirks and personality in a story that will speak directly to the hearts of middle grade readers. Plentiful illustrations and a sprinkling of Spanish reflect the diverse cast of characters.
