One of four new book in a series that encourages children to develop social skills in a gentle fun way, from author Jen Porter and illustrator Katie Saunders.

I made Mommy her favorite tea.
I threw Teddy a party.
I loaned Lola my scarf.

I Am Kind!

From loaning someone a scarf to throwing a special friend a party, teach children what being kind looks like―and how great it can make them feel!

Every day all over the world, children are laughing and crying, playing and learning, eating and sleeping. They may not look the same. They may not speak the same language. Their lives may be quite different. But inside, they are all alike. Stirring words and bold paintings weave their way around our earth, across cultures and generations. At a time when, unfortunately, the lessons of tolerance still need to be learned, Whoever You Are urges us to accept our differences, to recognize our similarities, and-most importantly-to rejoice in both.

When a kindergarten class gets rowdy, Mrs. Ruler knows just what to do.

She’s about to teach a new golden rule:
KINDNESS IS COOL!

Soon the entire class is doing so many good deeds that their kindness bulletin board barely fits their classroom!

From clearing the table after dinner, to helping the elderly, one kindergarten class is proving that kids really can make a difference.

Count along with Mrs. Ruler’s class. Can all their good deeds really add up to 100 acts of kindness?
