  1. Cheer Up by Michael Gordon -Simple rhymes tell of a little boy learning about kindness.
  2. Wings by Christopher Myers - a student who is different from the others is ok with his individualism.
  3. The Kindness Quilt by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace - a class assignment leads students to explore random acts of kindness
  4. Pinduli by Janell Cannon - A book about how words can make something enormous. A lesson on treating others with respect.
  5. The Boy Who Grew Flowers by Jen Wojtowicz - Treated as outcasts, two students new to a school form a bond around their uniqueness and lead others to explore kindness.
  6. How Kind! by Mary Murphy - A book that shows how act of kindness leads to a series of other good deeds. (See WOD #137)
  7. The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig - Left out by classmates, Brian befriends a new boy and makes the boy feel welcomed. Great lesson on kindness and making others feel included.
  8. Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson - Maya is rejected by girls at school and stops going to school. After a lesson on kindness by the teacher, the girls think about the consequences of their actions. (See WOD #607)
