Be Kind: You Can Make the World a Happier Place! 125 Kind Things to Say & DoThis is a lovely book that is full of ideas for how children can do kind things for others. It will appeal to elementary school age children and may help to counteract some of the meanness that occurs regularly in their world. The illustrations are bright, colorful, cheerful and appealing. The suggestions are simply stated. A child could dip into this volume without reading it in order. There are many good ideas to be found. A few examples:

Paint kindness rocks and leave them where they will be found.

Set up a bird feeder. There are directions for how to make one from a pine cone.

Foster a pet.

Set the dinner table without being asked.

Bring two jars of homemade bubbles to the playground. Instructions are included.

Make a welcome card that you and your friends sign (for a new kid in town.)

If these ideas appeal to you and/or you think that they may appeal to a child you know, consider purchasing this book. It would also be a good resource for a school library.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in return for an honest review.
