"...a beautiful book with a beautiful message...the book shows young children how easy it is to be kind through small acts and in simple ways..."—R.J. Palacio, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonder

What Does It Mean to Be Kind? is a rare kindness book for children because it uses a proactive, not reactive, introduction to a conversation about kindness.

Being kind means...

Smiling at the new student in class.

Giving someone a compliment.

Celebrating the differences in others.

When the girl in the red hat finds the courage to be kind to the new student in class, her kindness spreads. Kind act by kind act, her whole community experiences the magical shift that happens when everyone understands—and acts on—what it means to be kind. What Does it Mean to Be Kind? is a teacher must-have for the classroom, and for parents in search of kindness and feelings books for children.
