Our Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars

With a 8 month old baby, this book couldn’t come at a better time.  Jane Cowen-Fletcher really delivers a very sweet book with a really nice message.  Her illustration on the book are also very endearing and adds something special to this board book.  She has also done some great other like “Baby Elf’s Christmas”, I recommend this and her other books very highly.

Official Synopsis: What are some easy ways to be kind? Say hi to your friend. Be nice to your puppy. If you see someone fall down, maybe you can help them up! How about sharing your cookies or crackers? Or giving a tired someone a ride in your little wagon? From taking turns to saying you’re sorry, trying not to be angry to giving a big hug, these simplest of gestures, rendered in Jane Cowen-Fletcher’s adorable style, show that being kind feels so good that even a baby will want to try it.

When this first came, I sat my daughter down and read it to her and let me tell you she was loving it.  In fact, I had to read it a few times just because she keep grabbing at the book and wouldn’t take her eyes off it. Our daughter has had much interaction with other little children but this book really delivers good lessons on how to treat others. With some kid books I have read the words just really flow but that is not a problem here. I look forward to see what Jane Cowen-Fletcher is going to do next and count me in for sure!
