After the election results, I thought I’d turn to children’s books for comfort. They show me that we teach children to be thoughtful, kind and decent. My hope is that we can start to look beyond our differences in America and see the humanity and value in everyone. One critical element in that is kindness:
Highly recommended, this is a powerful book that is worth sharing and discussing.
A masterpiece of wordless storytelling, this is a radiant picture book made to be shared.
Beautifully told and illustrated, this is a strong addition to any story time on crocodiles or kindness.
Beautiful and charming, this little book is sure to become a favorite. Time to curl up with your own little bear and enjoy.
The House That Jane Built: A Story about Jane Addams by Tanya Lee Stone, illustrated by Kathryn Brown (my review)
This biography is a glimpse of an incredible woman whose legacy lives on in the United States and will serve as inspiration for those children looking to make a difference in the world around them.
A book that will help talk about homelessness and that offers a way forward, kindness.
Community, sharing and kindness come together in this splendidly illustrated picture book that is sure to be enjoyed along with other spring gardening books.
A superb book about bullying and exclusion, this can be used to start discussions in a classroom or with a single child.
A noteworthy picture book, this new title by Dubuc is charming and warm.
A lovely holiday book that is about more than either Christmas or Hanukkah but about home and hope.
