Book Synopsis

What does it mean to be nice? Some days it takes practice, or even courage.

Sometimes being nice means being patient with your little brother who doesn't know how to treat your favorite things. Being nice can mean going to your sister's boring dance recital. Or tasting a tuna noodle casserole your grandma made--when you can't stand tuna noodle casserole. Being nice takes practice, and that's okay. You just keep trying, and soon you discover how GREAT it be nice!

Review Quotes

"Finally, a book that discusses children's feelings and emotions about being uncomfortable. This book helps children address their emotions about having to do the right thing, even when they don't want to."--Booklist

"Rudd has her finger on the pulse of this social-emotional lesson, and gives the problems their due. Readers will relate to the authentic events unfolding and also receive clear instructions for some coping behavior. A pleasant, important book for this age group, giving them words and actions to smooth the course of their days."--School Library Journal
