There's nothing better than a book that reminds you of all the good that is still in this world. A book that opens the doors to essential conversations about accepting others and showing kindness. I love hearing my 4 year old's perspectives on these books and concepts when we read. She says these powerful things like "why are they being so mean? they don't even know her!" or "I don't like him, but I know that the only way to teach someone bad to be good, is to be nice to them" It's a pleasant reminder that although our lives and situations can become "complicated" - when it comes to human to human interactions it really is that simple. Be Kind.
Below is a list of our current favorites that in one way or another touch on issues of acceptance and friendship.
There are thousands more out there and as we come across them we will continue to share them with you, there's nothing more important in this world than the utter simplicity of kindness.
Happy Reading Everyone!
