School Library Journal/Series Made Simple, April 2021
Young readers are introduced to many ways they can show kindness throughout their day. Some of the titles focus on what kindness looks like in different environments or situations—at home, with friends, during the pandemic, or at school. Other titles educate readers on volunteering, how to help around the house, or understanding our differences. Straightforward text accompanied by engaging images describes small acts of kindness such as sharing toys and cleaning up. Text boxes containing “fun facts” are placed throughout the text with quick tips such as “Keep your voice soft when you’re indoors.” The books conclude with a page of multiple-choice and open-ended questions. Back matter includes a glossary, index, and resources. VERDICT A helpful resource to get kids thinking about how their behavior impacts others. Recommended for school libraries.
