It’s Kindness Week!

A day after HuffPo publishes a list of children’s books regarding empathy and kindness, BookRiot puts out another list of books about kindness, although they take it in a slightly different direction with books appropriate for older kids as well as picture books. This must be the week for teaching our little (and slightly bigger) ones about kindness! I love it! Although, I have to “Wonder” if a list about books that have been made into movies, like The Giver, is really all that helpful. Sure, there can be a list about books that were eventually made into movies, but how about a long list of books regarding kindness and empathy people have rarely heard anything about? Then again, I suppose there are always those popular books, like A Sick Day for Amos McGee, that someone doesn’t know about and would benefit greatly from learning about.
