Other than the protagonist's name, I really didn't think this story was in the style of Dr. Seuss, as the blurb stated. It is written in rhyme, but it doesn't have all the whimsical Seussian nonsense words or the same style of illustrations. The book does a good job of showing situations in which the Golden Rule is being followed by Zavis. I can see it being used by parents and teachers to start a discussion about treating others kindly and taking the initiative to help when you see a need. Since all the examples take place around the school day, it would work well in an elementary school setting, but could also be used at home or in preschools and day-cares.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
