Description



About the Book



"First published in 2019 in Australia by Hardie Grant Publishing"-- Page 4 of cover.



Book Synopsis



This bright book by the creator of Love Makes a Family celebrates acts of kindness big and small.

Kindness is a friendly hello. A roaring cheer. A quick boost. Kindness is what makes us strong! This joyful board book shows various children as they extend kindness in all kinds of situations: on the playground, at lunchtime, on a bike path, and on a neighborhood street. This sweet preschool read-aloud shows the way kindness helps build friendship and community.



Review Quotes



The rhythmic, repetitive text makes this book an excellent read-aloud as well as a fun and rewarding choice for children who are beginning to read independently . . . A gorgeously illustrated, cleanly written introduction to the art of kindness. --Kirkus, starred review

Gestures big and small, from offering comfort to sharing, are shown in this ode to community building . . . Cheery artwork features a diverse group of children. --School Library Journal, starred review



About The Author



Sophie Beer completed a dual degree in Law and Creative Industries with distinction at Queensland University of Technology, but found the whole law thing completely wrong for her and now works primarily in children's and editorial illustration. Reveling in color, shape, and texture, she lives by one simple rule: Art should never be boring. When she's not illustrating and writing, she thinks a lot about plants, animals, music, and books.

I purchased this as part of my one year old grandson's Christmas gift and although he is still a little one, I thought it was a perfect book to talk about kindness! I am looking forward to the first time I can read it to him!

I actually love this book. I love that there are short sentences on the pages. We offered our toddler the chance to look at the pictures and talk about what going on in them. He was able to talk out each scenario with us and we all loved it. We also loved the illustrations and characters!

My toddler loves this book. Every time we go to Target and look at books, he finds this one. What’s so great about this book is the representation. You have different races, children with disabilities, different food types, etc. The author doesn’t try to make anything in particular stand out. Everything feels homogeneous and positive. I buy this book as gifts all the time. Great find and highly recommend!

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my best friends kid’s. It was one of a couple of books. The illustrations are colorful and approachable for children. The book teaches children to be empathetic and thoughtful. I think many children will be able to see themselves in the pages of the book or see children they may encounter in school and in their community. I recommend.

Not for kids with food allergies

LF - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I was so incredibly sad when I got to the page about sharing snacks. As a mom of a child with multiple life-threatening food allergies, sharing snacks is something that is a huge danger to his life. Especially as a young child that doesn't fully understand his allergies yet. Really disappointed about that, the rest of the book is lovely.
