What Does It Mean to Be Kind?

Rana DiOrio (Author) Stephane Jorisch (Illustrator)


"...a beautiful book with a beautiful message...the book shows young children how easy it is to be kind through small acts and in simple ways..."--R.J. Palacio, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonder

Being kind means...
Smiling at the new student in class.
Giving someone a compliment.
Celebrating the differences in others.

When the girl in the red hat finds the courage to be kind to the new student in class, her kindness spreads. Kind act by kind act, her whole community experiences the magical shift that happens when everyone understands--and acts on--what it means to be kind.
