Reviews

[A] lovely exploration of empathy and thoughtfulness. * Publishers Weekly *
These days, it seems more important than ever for books to show young people how to act with thoughtfulness, civility, and kindness. * The New York Times Book Review *
The precisely worded, hopeful text offers ideas to ponder, while the artwork places them within kidfriendly contexts, such as a multiracial classroom and a neighborhood park. Nicely designed for drawing out children's ideas and opening a discussion on kindness, this picture book works well one-on-one or read aloud in a classroom, for the expressive pictures are still effective from a distance. A thoughtful picture book. * Booklist *
The book presents the powerful message that small acts of kindness matter, and that they can build with other acts of kindness to make a difference . . . A valuable addition on this topic [that] will promote conversation about what it means to be kind. * School Library Journal *
Here's a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at what it means to be kind and how kindness can spread.Throughout the author leaves space for readers/listeners to reflect on the narrator's words, which never once become preachy. Jen Hill's illustrations are enormously appealing capturing so well the feelings of Tanisha, the narrator, their classmates and the wider community. -- Jill Bennett * https://redreadinghub.blog/2020/07/22/be-kind/ *
This thoughtful story explores what children can do to be kind. * Red *
This is such a thoughtful and reflective book that children and adults can both learn a lot from * Stories for Little Ones *
