I Am a Kindness Hero

Written by Jennifer Adams

Illustrated by Carme Lemniscates

Ages 4-8 | 32 Pages

Publisher: Sounds True | ISBN-13: 978-1683644729

Publisher’s Synopsis: Children will learn the importance of treating others with love, kindness, and respect.

Follow the adventures of a young boy as he practices kindness throughout his day, from rescuing a puppy to standing up to bullies to helping his young sister tie her shoe. I Am a Kindness Hero celebrates gentleness and vulnerability in boys, and shows that true strength and leadership come from treating those around you with love and respect.

I Am a Kindness Hero provides parents, teachers, and childcare providers with a beautiful picture book that offers a new kind of role model for young boys. A standalone title, it also serves as a companion to I Am a Warrior Goddess, by the same author and illustrator, which inspires strength, leadership, and empowerment in young girls.

  • What great books to read to my 10 grandsugars. All of them love for me to read to them plus the ones that can read want me to read to them first as I am a former teacher so I add all of the different voices and sounds that they like then they read it. This is the only way we are going to teach our next generation and those after to read and also be kind to everyone. Plus the pictures in the book draw them in even more so I am sure that they would love to read them also I could read to the kids that I help and tutor still when we have extra time!
