All Kinds of Kindness

S. & S./Little Simon. Aug. 2020. 26p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781534432062.
PreS-K–Rhyming couplets celebrate kindness in all its shapes and forms in this sweet title. The concept of kindness is parsed into developmentally appropriate language on each spread: “Calm your friend, free a bug./ Offer him a great big hug./ Pick up litter, cleaning spree./ Kindness starts with you and me.” Vivid digital illustrations accompany the text and provide further context for the spare text. The illustrations could also be used to encourage further conversation about acts of kindness.
VERDICT A great choice for story times, and a general purchase for most libraries.
