I am Kind BookIn this book Dr. Owen helps children think about what it is to be kind. She says we have to look outside of ourselves, outside of our wants, and think about others. She tells, in greater detail than in this review, that there are three basic ways to be kind. They are: be aware of others to see if you should change your actions based on others needs; ask people if they need help, and show people you care through random acts of kindness. The illustrations are colorful and inclusive. The message is appropriate for children who are just beginning to recognize the needs of others and a good review for children throughout the elementary years.
