A lyrical and timely story about a little girl who learns the power of kindness, bravery, and friendship in the face of uncertainty. When the news reports are flooded with tales of hatred and fear, a girl asks her papa what she can do to make the world a better place. "Come with me," he says. Hand-in-hand, they walk to the subway, tipping their hats to those they meet. The next day, the girl asks her mama what she can do--her mama says, "Come with me," and together they set out for the grocery, because one person doesn't represent an entire race or the people of a land. After dinner that night, the little girl asks if she can do something of her own--walk the dog . . . and her parents let her go. "Come with me," the girl tells the boy across the hall. Walking together, one step at a time, the girl and the boy begin to see that as small and insignificant as their part may seem, it matters to the world.

Palacio, The New York Times "This lovely picture book . . . offers smaller children a gentle, encouraging, age-appropriate response to disturbing news reports."--The New York Times "Inspired by the 9/11 attacks in the States and the bombings in Brussels in early 2017, this book tackles a tough subject with honesty, gentleness, and a call to action. Let's all try to do the same."--Publishers Weekly ShelfTalker "[A]n emotionally rich proclamation about not giving into fear."--Publishers Weekly "Teaching children that they can make a difference by being 'brave, gentle, strong - and kind' in their daily lives is a powerful message.
