Will You Be the I in Kind is a book about how to be kind to others and the environment. A paper with the word ‘kind’ is missing an I. It goes around asking kids to be that ‘I’.
They say they’d love to and ask how they can do it. Each of them gets to do a selfless task, something as simple as smiling at others or allowing another kid to go first.
Together, the kids form a huge 'I' in kind because that’s how kindness should be. The book is beautiful. The illustrations are so vibrant and full of life. The characters are diverse (to an extent) and cute, kids who want to really do something good to make others happy.
There's a note at the end for parents and educators to start discussions with kids and make them understand the importance of being empathetic towards others.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and National Center for Youth Issues and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A wonderful and simple read that can get the conversation started on ways we can be kind all throughout the year.
