How can you start to spread a little kindness now? At your home? With your kids? In your community?
I’ve got a few great books about kindness for you–must-have’s for older and younger readers.
Grab a few of these kindness focused books for our younger readers:
How to Heal a Broken Wing, by Bob Graham
The Gardener, by Sarah Stewart and illustrated by David Small
How Full is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer and illustrated by Maurie J. Manning
The Rain Came Down, by David Shannon
The Farmer, by Mark Ludy
And a few books for our slightly older readers that can spark a good discussion about kindness:
Wonder, by R. J. Palacio
El Deafo, by Cece Bell
Counting By 7s, by Holly Goldberg Sloan
The One and Only Ivan, by Katherine Applegate
Out of my Mind, by Sharon M. Drapier
