Kindness Book List

Picture Books & Resources

I think probably kindness is my number one attribute in a human being. I'll put it before any of the things like courage or bravery or generosity or anything else.

Roald Dahl

Adults need to model generous, caring and kind behaviour for children to learn from. For children to show unprompted, natural kindness they need to be on the receiving end of such actions to understand its power. Children need opportunities to discuss the consequences of their actions and understand we don’t need recognition for kindness. Help them imagine how others feel during intolerant or difficult situations by reading the books below. They promote caring, thoughtful and respectful behaviour and are great discussion starters on what it means to be kind.
