Be Kind | Pat Zietlow Miller
40 posts | 16 read | 4 to read
From the award-winning author of Sophie's Squash comes a thoughtful picture book about the power of kindness. When Tanisha spills grape juice all over her new dress, her classmate contemplates how to make her feel better and what it means to be kind. From asking the new girl to play to standing up for someone being bullied, this moving and thoughtful story explores what a child can do to be kind, and how each act, big or small, can make a differenceor at least help a friend. With a gentle text from Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor author Pat Zietlow Miller, and irresistible art from Jen Hill, Be Kind is an unforgettable story about how two simple words can change the world.

Today I‘m sending out a Valentine to my best friend and one especially for her son. She‘s going through a tough year and since we can‘t see each other I‘ve been upping my letter writing game to my Bestie.

#30DaysOfGratitude @jb72

Today's prompt is about kindness to self, which I could use some more of. I've recently become fascinated by Enneagram types (who's with me? Leave your type in the comments!), and as a Type 1, I am extremely self-critical. I appreciate the reminder to give myself a break sometimes! #enneagram

Grateful for:
-Supportive colleagues
-Friends who remind me to breathe
-Long walks on chilly afternoons

jb72 I just took the test. I‘m type four. The Individualist. 2y
Andrea313 @jb72 Yes, Four!!! 👍 Do you feel it fits you? I find these types of things imperfect but incredibly interesting. 2y
jb72 @Andrea313 Actually I‘d say it fits pretty good. 2y
Hestapleton I‘m also a type 1! Me to a T! 2y
Andrea313 @Hestapleton Yes! Reformers/Idealists unite! ✊ 2y

I‘ve been overwhelmed by the kindness of complete strangers who have directly impacted the lives of 28 3rd graders. What a movement! Don‘t worry, I still have plenty more items you can help clear too! 😉#clearthelists https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/7CU8WWG3IHY0?ref_=wl_share

Letter B - This #picturebook talks not only about kindness, it also gives concrete examples. From sitting next to someone when they are sad, baking cookies for a neighbor, putting dishes in the sink, paying attention when someone is talking, listening patiently to an older relative‘s repetitive stories, or using a person‘s name when talking to them, the story serves as a great launching point to discuss all the ways you can be a kind person.⬇️

alisiakae I know a few middle schoolers who would benefit from the reminders in this book! 😂😂😂 #BBRC #a2z @LibrarianRyan (edited) 3y

KPC Nice pick! I love books that promote kindness. I think it‘s so important to share books like this with little ones, specially since we hear about so much bullying in schools. 3y
Kayladvazquez I think this book would be very helpful to read at the beginning of the year when talking to students about the rules of the classroom. I would have them do a dramatic reenactment and act of acts of kindness. 3y
Alexis-Thompson This book would be a perfect way to start the school year! It allows students to remember how being kind to classmates could really make ones day. 3y

What does it mean to 'be kind'?
Great overall message/lesson for little ones, this story can teach about empathy & what it means to be a good person. Can use to introduce a lesson on kindness.
Works well for storytelling.

Highly recommended! Highlights concrete acts of kindness that work on a “act local, think global” mindset. It teaches kids being kind is a realistic achievable goal.

All about the importance of being kind, but what I really like about this picture book is that it gives concrete examples of things you can do to be kind. It also acknowledges that it isn‘t always easy. The art is great, too.

A great book on kindness. I love that it acknowledges how hard it can be sometimes to be kind. We tell kids to always be kind but often fail to acknowledge their personal feelings and insecurities. Also, it can be hard to figure out the right thing to do to show kindness. Overall, a great message.

#Aprella Day 28: These two picturebooks do not show #SelfishLove in the least as they highlight compassion, empathy, and kindness. I read the tagged book aloud during my Parent Workshop at the Canadian International School last Tuesday and it was such a huge hit - there is subtlety and vulnerability here that is deeply moving.
