Book Review: What Does it Mean to Be Kind?

Author: Rana DiOrio
Interest Level: Ages 4 and Up

About This Book: A girl in a red hat finds the courage to be kind to the new student in class. Her kindness spreads, kind act by kind act, until her whole community experiences the magical shift that happens when everyone understands―and acts on―what it means to be kind.

Why It's On My Bookshelf: I'm putting together some lessons on kindness for January and have not had a chance to use this book yet. I think this will be a great refresher for kids as we go into the new year to remember how important it is to extend kindness to everyone in all that we do and say. This is a lovely book with many examples of kids doing caring acts for others. It is spot on.
