Synopsis

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.

In the media
Here’s a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at what it means to be kind and how kindness can spread.Throughout the author leaves space for readers/listeners to reflect on the narrator’s words, which never once become preachy. Jen Hill’s illustrations are enormously appealing capturing so well the feelings of Tanisha, the narrator, their classmates and the wider community.
