Local Girls’ Rule Book Goes Viral
Two young cousins from Citrus Heights were reunited with a “rules book” they’d written after accidentally losing it at their local Walmart last Friday. Isabelle, whose 10 and Isabella whose 8, used the spiral notebook to write simple rules for life , like “Don’t bite the dentist.”
The book was discovered by Walmart employee Raymond Flores and quickly became an Internet sensation after Flores contacted the media to try to find its owner. He was really moved by the book and its touching rules, including Rule 154, to “Protect this book.” The book that ended up going viral and catching the attention of Good Morning America also included the rule, “If you’re going to wet your bed, wear a pull-up.”
On Wednesday, Isabelle’s mom saw an article online about a rules book written by kids. Thinking that it was perhaps a new trend that her daughter was part of, she clicked on the article. When she saw the article’s mention of the “Don’t bite the dentist” rule, she realized this was the same rules book her daughter and Isabella had lost. She emailed the FOX affiliate here in Sacramento and the two young girls were reunited with their rules book. The girls, are both avid writers who created the book over Christmas break in an attempt to teach Isabelle’s 6-year-old sister about rules.
