"Positivity pulses through the pages of this picture book about the effects of kind and thoughtful actions and the many ways one might spread good in the world.... While the lines acknowledge that some problems can feel too big to solve, this read offers a sunny emotional reset to inspire do-gooders."--Publishers Weekly
Praise for A Good Deed Can Grow:
A Miami Herald Best Children's Picture Book about Kindness
A Canadian Children's Book Centre Best Book for Kids

"The book shows how performing a single act of kindness has the potential to trigger a chain of further kind actions that can have a significant impact on the world, similar to how a seed can grow into a dandelion and spread or a drop can cause ripples across a lake. The images depict a range of individuals engaging in kind actions such as picking up litter, sharing lemonade, leaving messages with chalk, and visiting a sick friend. These visuals are intended to prompt the audience to be more considerate and compassionate."--The Miami Herald
