Book of the Week

The Everybody’s Story Children’s Library will highlight a book selection each week from the new library. This book will be placed on the new library book shelf for all to see and check out.

This week’s selection is Be Kind by Pat Zietlow Miller.

“These days, it seems more important than ever for books to show young people how to act with thoughtfulness civility and kindness.” — The New York Times Book Review

About the book: When Tanisha spills grape juice all over her new dress, her classmate wants to make her feel better, wondering: What does it mean to be kind?

From asking the new girl to play to standing up for someone being bullied, this moving story explores what kindness is, and how any act, big or small, can make a difference — or at least help a friend.

With a gentle text from the award-winning author of Sophie’s Squash, Pat Zietlow Miller, and irresistible art from Jen Hill, Be Kind is an unforgettable story about how two simple words can change the world.
