About the Book
“First published in 2019 in Australia by Hardie Grant Publishing”– Page 4 of cover.
This bright book by the creator of Love Makes a Family celebrates acts of kindness big and small.
Kindness is a friendly hello. A roaring cheer. A quick boost. Kindness is what makes us strong! This joyful board book shows various children as they extend kindness in all kinds of situations: on the playground, at lunchtime, on a bike path, and on a neighborhood street. This sweet preschool read-aloud shows the way kindness helps build friendship and community.
★ The rhythmic, repetitive text makes this book an excellent read-aloud as well as a fun and rewarding choice for children who are beginning to read independently . . . A gorgeously illustrated, cleanly written introduction to the art of kindness. —Kirkus, starred review
★ Gestures big and small, from offering comfort to sharing, are shown in this ode to community building . . . Cheery artwork features a diverse group of children. —School Library Journal, starred review
About The Author
Sophie Beer completed a dual degree in Law and Creative Industries with distinction at Queensland University of Technology, but found the whole law thing completely wrong for her and now works primarily in children’s and editorial illustration. Reveling in color, shape, and texture, she lives by one simple rule: Art should never be boring. When she’s not illustrating and writing, she thinks a lot about plants, animals, music, and books.
