How To Be Kind in Kindergarten: A Book for Your Backpack

Grosset & Dunlap. Jun. 2021. 32p. Tr $8.99. ISBN 9780593226940.
PreS-K–Digital art, bright colors, and a cast of cartoon characters with features and skin tones that present ethnic and racial diversity join with rhyming verse to remind readers of the importance of kindness to others, all in a kindergarten setting. Each scenario offers reminders on how to show care: opening doors for a child using a wheelchair, reaching out to help a fallen friend, inviting a shy child to join in, sharing at lunch with others, taking turns, making cards for sick friends, or welcoming newcomers.
VERDICT A suggested general purchase for libraries, this creates numerous examples and opportunity for discussion while providing understanding and encouragement of kindness toward all.
