A book for EVERY home & classroom!
I absolutely adore this book! The illustrations are beautiful, and even includes small heart cut outs within the book. The message throughout the book is uplifting, positive, and something every child should hear. It explains that sometimes what we see as kind isn’t always interpreted as such. We should try to understand why someone may not think our actions are kind, even if our intentions are good. It also explains that some people are hard to be kind to, but it’s really important to try to figure out what makes them happy and how to spread kindness to them. A definite MUST HAVE book!

LOVE this book
This book is beautiful not only with illustrations but the story as well. Perfect for children of all ages showing how a little girl thinks she's being kind but when looking from the other perspective she wasn't always being kind. This is also a great sister book showing the love (and struggles) between sister.

Everyone needs to read this!
Every child needs to read this book just about every day. I immediately fell in love with the illustrations and the little cut outs on each page. We did a first flip through just to see how the sun scattered hearts across the pages (and our lawn).
Even better is the message that kindness isn’t about what YOU think is kind, it is about finding out what others think will be kind.

a must have for any collection!
The message of this book is wonderful - true kindness is to look from another's perspective. Engaging illustrations with so much to discover, the paper cut outs add another dimension to the reading as well. My 4 year old immediately understood the message. Would be great for any classroom or school counselor.

Amazing! Great message!
Absolutely love the message in this book: to look at things from someone else's point of view to see what they feel is kind. What you may think is fun and kind, someone else may see as hurtful and unkind. It's broken down into simplistic language for younger kiddos to understand that even when not doing something wrong, another person may not feel the same way. Beautiful, beautiful book. Perfect for classrooms, siblings, and any kiddo learning to be a friend.
