Unlike typical picture books meant to teach kids kindness, this doesn‘t have a happy ending. We never find out exactly what happened to the girl who was bullied, & the main character is left with a poignant sense of regret that she learned a valuable lesson too late. But the book itself isn‘t unkind, & I wouldn‘t hesitate to share it with young kids. I think they‘ll learn from it & appreciate the realism. #KindnessDay #NovemberNarrative

This book is about a young girl who does not accept a new girl at school. This young girl quickly is taught the power of kindness.

This is a great read-aloud for any aged student, or adult about the power of each kindness.

Will definitely be using this in my future classroom

Published in 2012, This story is about Two little girls, Chloe and Maya. Chloe didn't show much kindness to Maya and their teacher gave a lesson about kindness to them. After the lesson, Chloe was upset that she didn't show Maya Kindness and lost a friendship because of it. Maya ended up leaving the school because people weren't showing her kindness.

Today was a busy day, so I‘m only just now getting around to posting this news. For those who were following the story in my previous posts, the school board at my high school Alma mater reversed the book ban!

I guess the condemnation from Fox News was the last straw. 🙄

wanderinglynn Yay! 🎉 1y

After seeing this children‘s book recommended on Litsy, I decided to give it a try for the @Soubhiville #authoramonth challenge, and I am glad that I did. The ending is the surprise. Not tied up with a big bow, but one that encourages discussion. Beautiful illustrations. I loved it.

Tamra A favorite! 2y

Another wonderful children‘s cook that parents can read with their kids to help spark conversation. In this case a conversation about kindness and being kind to others. #AuthorAMonth

Since #authoramonth in May is Jacqueline Woodson, I thought I would remind you all about this children‘s book she wrote in 2012. My sister got it for me at a conference where the illustrator was a guest. I use it often with my kids in therapy because it‘s a good one for empathy & how our actions affect others.

TheBookHippie I use this all the time, I agree, wonderful review. 2y
mandarchy She recorded herself reading this when she won the youth reading ambassador award. I love it because she flubs up a couple of times. You can find it on YouTube. 2y

This RF book is about a girl named Chloe who is not kind to the new girl. She eventually realizes that kindness goes a long way, but she was too late to be nice to her. This Coretta Scott King and Jane Addams award winner is perfect for a RA! It can teach kids to be kind to everyone, no matter what. Like what Chloe‘s teacher said, “...everything we do goes out, like a ripple into the world.”

This RF by Jacqueline Woodson really pulls at the heart strings. A young girl named Chloe is unwelcoming to the new girl Maya. After Maya faces months of bullying, their teacher decides to teach a lesson on kindness, which gives Chloe a change of heart, only it‘s too late. This book won the 2013 Coretta Scott King Award, and would be great for RA and PR. #ucflae3414f19

JennaMichelleCohn This book is great for helping students learn empathy and kindness, and I highly recommend it. It is one of my new favorite books. This book has such a great moral, so ESOL strategy 3, “Encourage self-talk (positive thinking),” would be great for this, along with UDL 9.3 regarding self-assessment and reflection. 3y
JennaMichelleCohn https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/each-kindness this page offers many useful resources for educators and parents. I really like the anti-bullying book and the kindness guide for educators. 3y
DrSpalding Reading is fundamental is such a fabulous resource for teachers and as you noted for parents as well. This book does have a beautiful message that aligns beautifully with English learner strategy three and universal design principle 9.3. Well done. 3y

Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson, 2012. Coretta Scott King Award Winning Book. This is such a great picture book! The author really helps children understand how being kind to one another really effects the world and people around them. This book also shows how actions definitely have consequences as well!

#SelfImprovementSept Day 25: Fats‘ review: “In Each Kindness, Woodson and Lewis send a thought-provoking message about a virtue that some people take for granted” - particularly #RandomActOfKindness that we could have done but chose not to do. One of the books I unreservedly recommend to anyone and everyone. See Fats‘ full review with a “May It Forward Kindness and Gratitude” challenge: https://wp.me/pDlzr-cuq

#bbrc #a2z Letter E - Actions have consequences, and sometimes you lose the opportunity to go back and make things better. And even if you do, the scars remain. It teaches a valuable lesson on judging others, told from the perspective of a child who is being the judgmental one. It‘s a moving #picturebook.

Each Kindess (RF, Jane Addams Award) by Jacqueline Woodson is an absolute must read! It teaches a valuable lesson about kindness and how judgement affects us. I will definitely be using this in my classroom. It works as a RA but can be made into a S! A bonus is the illustrations by E. B. Lewis! UDL 7.2 Optimize relevance, value, and authenticity. EL Strategy 11 Place language in meaningful context.

This is one of my absolute favorite picture books ever! This RF book is the perfect RA book to talk about kindness! Author Jacqueline Woodson beautifully says “This is what kindness does, each little thing we do goes out, like a ripple into the world.” So true! Each Kindness was awarded the Coretta Scott King Honor Award! When you read this book, you will be truly moved by the words, the illustrations (By E.B. Lewis), and the message!

Channing_Austin This link takes you to a great lesson that you could pair with your RA. It‘s all about spreading kindness! www.thenedshow.com/assets/keep-kindness-going-primary-lesson-plan-each-kindness.pdf 4y

This is a rough read, but I appreciate that it does not sugarcoat how crappily some kids are treated in school, and teachers doesn‘t always step in. It also doesn‘t doesn‘t wrap things up neatly. Sometimes there isn‘t chance to make things better for that person. Unlike some, I didn‘t find the story without hope, though. I think the protagonist did something that made her feel crappy, and she will do better next time.

Just watched Jacqueline Woodson‘s Video for #NationalReadAloudDay. The miscues and Woodson‘s handling of them are so great for kids. Each Kindness is also powerful. Childhood is messy and full of ambiguous situations. That‘s where the learning is. I plan to attend at least one of her #TFOB sessions.

For World Read Aloud Day, newly named Ambassador for Children‘s Lit reads her book Each Kindness. It broke my heart the first time I read it. We‘ve read it aloud several times now since. Powerful & real message, not sappy or condescending to young people. https://t.co/H7e1kmVpiL

This RF story won a Coretta Scott King and Jane Addams peace award. Chloe and her friends won‘t hang out with Maya. Eventually, Maya stops coming to school. Chloe‘s teacher gives her a lesson about small acts of kindness. Chloe is now disappointed in herself for the lost opportunity of a friendship. This book has a powerful anti-bully message. It is a very beneficial book that can be added to any classroom. Great for a RA.

Beths http://www.thenedshow.com/assets/keep-kindness-going-primary-lesson-plan-each-ki... this is a really great resource with worksheets and activities that can be used with the story. Setting up collaboration and community UDL 8.3 is a major focus for this story and lesson. So is encouraging positive thinking EL 3. #UCFLAE3414F17 5y
hannahl I think it is so important to have books like this in your classroom library, because it entails the theme of kindness. Especially in elementary school it is hard for children to feel welcoming to each other and being excluded is a problem so books like this one provides a sense of comfort. 5y

This RF book by Jacqueline Woodson has won the Charlotte Zolotow Award and Jane Adams Peace award and is an amazing book for RA, SR, PR, and DR. Although this book is longer than a typical DR, I think it would be beneficial for students to act out the narrative of this book so that the rest of the class will visualize what the author is trying to portray. This book is an amazing resource to teach children to be kind,

jvinas2 not just by saying "Be kind to one another", but by portraying the personal effects of when you choose not to be kind; "Each kindness I had never shown." is such a powerful quote to acknowledge. Beneficial ESOL strategies and UDL guidelines to use with this book would be 3, 4 & 24 (ESOL) and 2.4 & 3.1 (UDL) to use prior knowledge to encourage positive thinking while incorporating cultures/languages of these ELs. 5y
jvinas2 This link leads to a lesson plan that can be used when reading this book to further deliver the message of kindness in and out of the classroom: https://thinkkindness.org/rocking-kindness-classroom-beyond/ #UCFLAE3414F17 5y
DrSpalding The quotes here are truly powerful. I made text to text connections with of course, Wonder. Excellent EL/UDL alignment. You are right that these books can be used in multiple ways and will meet the needs of ALL students. 5y

Sob! What a powerful heart-aching lesson. No immediate happy endings here, which drives the point home. I am anxious to hear my kids' reactions to this one. I've been wanting to read Brown Girl Dreaming for awhile now - this has pushed it to the top.

My eyes got a little watery on this one. Probably dust in my eye. Or emotions.
