The author of this deck for children begins by explaining what kindness is. It is distinguished from “being nice.” Kindness is described as having elements of compassion, empathy, courage and responsibility. The deck of included cards is then divided to represent each of these qualities. It is noted that some cards may be used more than once, some may be used right away, while others may require just the right time.
I think that these cards will work best with an adult’s encouragement and modeling. The directions are very easy to follow yet I think that it will help children to know that adults also need to practice kindness. Make it a game with a child you know. You will both benefit.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
