2020 will be remembered as the year we found ourselves separated from friends and family, but in many ways it brought people closer together. Our local community banded around to make sure everyone had food and shelter and there was a huge surge of support for our precious small businesses. Kindness was everywhere and I really hope that this continues into 2021 and beyond!
This gorgeous little ABC book is a great way to introduce the concept of kindness to small children. Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with a tangible act which is easy for toddlers and pre-schoolers to understand. You can Brighten someone’s day with a smile. You can Stand up for someone else. You can Thank others and make them feel appreciated. You can Understand that everyone has their own way of doing things. Each suggestion is a small thing which costs you nothing but the positive impact it has is clear to see.
The book features a diverse and inclusive cast of characters, all showing compassion for each other in everyday situations. The illustrations show a wide range of skin and hair colours as well as people from multiple generations. We also spotted children with crutches, glasses and hearing aids so most children should see themselves represented here.
If you’re looking for a book which encourages your child to be the best version of themselves then i’d highly recommend this one.
