"...a beautiful book with a beautiful message...the book shows young children how easy it is to be kind through small acts and in simple ways..."--R.J. Palacio, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonder

What Does It Mean to Be Kind? is a rare kindness book for children because it uses a proactive, not reactive, introduction to a conversation about kindness.

Part of the award-winning What Does It Mean to Be...? series, What Does It Mean to Be Kind? explains the idea of kindness in an accessible and understandable way.

Being kind means...

Smiling at the new student in class.

Giving someone a compliment.

Celebrating the differences in others.

When the girl in the red hat finds the courage to be kind to the new student in class, her kindness spreads. Kind act by kind act, her whole community experiences the magical shift that happens when everyone understands--and acts on--what it means to be kind. What Does it Mean to Be Kind? is a teacher must-have for the classroom, and for parents in search of kindness and feelings books for children.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the fifth entry in the author's What Does It Mean... series, DiOrio begins by contemplating-somewhat obscurely-what kindness is not: "Does it mean paying with something other than money? No. Does it mean being `sort of' something? No!" On the other hand, examples of kind acts, which constitute the rest of the book, are clear and conventional: "Being kind means... smiling at the new student in the class... giving someone a compliment... holding the door open for someone else... sticking up for someone who is being bullied." Jorisch (the Betty Bunny series) presents a multicultural cast of lean-bodied children supporting and caring for one another, demonstrating patience and forgiveness. It's a sweet and non-judgmental affirmation about the happy returns that come through kind actions. Ages 4-8. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
