Imagine a world where everyone is kind. How can we make that come true?

This simple but impactful picture book teaches the youngest readers how to be kind. Nearly 40 different illustrators have collaborated to create this artistic treat and affirm the universal importance of kindness. From listening to offering a helping hand to simply giving someone a smile, it's easy for children to help make the world a better place.

Oh So Kind! by Joy Cho with illustrations by Angie Stalker

Every day holds lots of opportunities to be kind. And kindness can mean all sorts of things! Maybe you include someone and make a new friend, or encourage someone who is struggling. No matter what, you'll bring a little warmth into someone's day! Interactive lift-the-flaps will engage readers in this big-hearted book about being a good friend, neighbor, and family member!

Follow little llama, who is depicted in a wheelchair, and friends on their adventures, rendered in vibrant, detailed art featuring an adorable cast of animal friends. Whimsical, rhyming text gently nudges the reader toward everyday acts of kindness.

This sweet follow up to Be Curious! and You're Okay! will be a welcome addition to any home library.
