"A wonderful book that teaches us all the healing power of kindness." -- Leon Logothetis, The Kindness Diaries
"It s nice to see a children s book focused so specifically on the value of kindness, and one that gives so many definitions of what that term can mean. It s also pleasant to experience the kind treatment of animals as part of what it means to be kind. The publisher includes a note in the book about their use of environmentally sustainable materials in production, demonstrating the book s lessons in practice. This is a cute book with a welcome perspective." --Foreword Reviews"
