Waterstones Says

Written with charm and sensitivity by Pat Zietlow Miller and illustrated with exquisite grace by Jen Hill, Be Kind highlights all the many and varied ways in which children can bring a little thoughtfulness and compassion into other people’s lives.   

Each act, big or small, can make a difference - or at least help a friend.

What does it mean to be kind? When Tanisha spills grape juice all over her new dress, her classmate contemplates how to make her feel better and what it means to be kind. From asking the new girl to play to standing up for someone being bullied, this moving and thoughtful story explores what a child can do to be kind.

With award-winning author Pat Zietlow Miller's gentle text and Jen Hill's irresistible art, Be Kind is an unforgettable story about how simple acts can change the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[A] lovely exploration of empathy and thoughtfulness.' - Publishers Weekly

'These days, it seems more important than ever for books to show young people how to act with thoughtfulness, civility, and kindness.' - The New York Times Book Review

'The precisely worded, hopeful text offers ideas to ponder, while the artwork places them within kidfriendly contexts, such as a multiracial classroom and a neighborhood park. Nicely designed for drawing out children's ideas and opening a discussion on kindness, this picture book works well one-on-one or read aloud in a classroom, for the expressive pictures are still effective from a distance. A thoughtful picture book.' - Booklist

'The book presents the powerful message that small acts of kindness matter, and that they can build with other acts of kindness to make a difference . . . A valuable addition on this topic [that] will promote conversation about what it means to be kind.' - School Library Journal
