Kayla is a little girl who wants everything her way. She doesn't care how it makes others feel or understand why it is important to be nice to people. So when the kids start calling her "Meanie Gadini" and they don't want to come to her birthday party, she gets a little taste of her own medicine and learns a valuable lesson in return. Meanie Gadini is an excellent book to help children understand the golden rule. Do unto others as you will have them do unto you.
