Friends and family taking note of my Kindlandia posts—a blog featuring Kindness in memory of my best friend Edythe Stromme—are joining in and sharing their experiences of Kindness.
My book coach, Kay Vreeland, recently sent heartening words, “I’m noticing the Kindness movement more now, and these were on Instagram this morning…
A charming new book, Be Kind, by Pat Zietlow and illustrated by Jen Hill have their advanced reader’s edition available. http://amzn.to/2DIDhp3
The sweatshirt quote is, “In a world where you can be anything, CHOOSE KIND.”
The quote reminded me of the ancient Native parable about the two wolves. A young boy approached a wise Elder.
He said, “I have two wolves inside of me. One is always angry and mean. The other is kind and loving. I’m worried about which one will overtake me.”
The Elder gently replied, “It depends on which one you feed.”
Today is Multicultural Children’s Book Day, January 27, 2018. For the past several weeks a dedicated team has gathered the support of writers who have authored books to highlight kindness, inclusion and honoring of diversity. One feature offered as a FREE RESOURCE for teachers, librarians, parents, and KidLit Lovers is a Classroom Kindness Kit and Diverse Booklist. The resource is available until January 30th.
