Imagine a world where everyone is kind. How can we make that come true?
This is a book which from start to finish celebrates kindness. Full of positive and inspiring ideas, it reminds us all that we can all make a difference by being kind. It is not only beautiful, but much needed reminder in the current climate.
An amazing group of illustrators have come together and generously donated their artwork for the book. Thirty-eight different illustrative styles accompany the wonderfully positive messages. Bright and colourful, each is a real joy to share and explore and the range of artistic styles is fascinating.
Any of the spreads could be used as a ‘thought for the day’ or as the theme for an assembly or class discussion. There are simple suggestions for small acts of kindness which could make a huge difference and plenty to discuss and enjoy. Children could add their own ideas and illustrate them too, creating their own book of kindness alongside this one. It would also be fun for children to illustrate some of the ideas from the book before seeing how an illustrator had imagined it and then comparing the two.
The book finishes with information about Three Peas, a charity which helps people who have had to flee their homes. A donation from the sale of each book goes to the charity and the book explains some of the work they do. There is a foreword by Axel Scheffler who has been a patron of the charity for over two years.
We all need a little kindness in our lives -and to pass that kindness on to others. This is such a beautiful book with so much to offer- everyone needs a copy in their life!
