Sweet book, a little lengthy for younger children

Really cute book, flows nicely. Teaches good ways we can be kind. A little lengthy for younger audiences (26 letters!) So don't expect to get through it in one sitting. But good suggestions, rhyming, cute drawings!

Such beautiful illustrations and words. It’s such a great book. I’m so glad I found it and bought it. The first ordered book had a page in the middle that was bent and would close so target replaced it and I’m a happy camper now.

Unsure about the content

The idea of the book is nice, but execution didn’t sit right with me. It felt more like a “book of lack of boundaries” and being an overly-empathetic pushover than true kindness. The “kisses for loved ones everyday” felt really off, maybe I’m looking too far into it but I never want my child to feel obligated to show that kind of affection unless they want to. Also “making time for everyone”, “be everyone’s friend”… I know the intentions were good, but doesn’t hit the mark. Reminds me of something I read recently about immature empathy, not true kindness. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great book concept but just wanted to warn other parents who are committed to respecting their child’s boundaries that this book may not be fit for them.

Monsters under the bed? No thanks

Loved the book until I saw the page with a monster under the bed. Why even give kids that thought? My son is 3.5 and has never ever mentioned this before. We don’t watch anything scary for this reason. He instantly asked me what was under the bed. I had to tell him it was a cat. This is ridiculous. I colored it to look like a rug

my 17 month old daughter loves it. she'll sit on my lap while I read it three or four times. I enjoy the messaging. it's not only about being kind to others but yourself as well. it has cute, simple rhymes. I'm glad I bought it!

This book is amazing! It’s a must buy! I randomly purchased it along with two other children’s books I had already read. This book (which I hadn’t read or heard of) has turned out to be my favorite! I’m currently 5 months pregnant with my first and when I opened the box and read it out loud, I unexpectedly got emotional! I have since taken it to my in laws house and read it to my nieces. I can’t wait to read this to my own baby when she’s born and for years to come! I will purchase this book for all baby showers going forward!

I love love love this book! I think I’ve read it so much to my toddler that I practically memorized it by now. I think I want to give this book out whenever there’s a baby shower.
