World Read Aloud Day’s theme this week is Kindness.
I admit it. I’m not always kind. If I’m picking up or dropping off kids and I’m behind the only-person-on-the-face-of-the-earth who slows down when driving through a green light, or lets ten other cars go so that I miss a left turn arrow, or is holding a phone (illegal in NJ), or drives below the speed limit, I may honk my horn, may say things not appropriate for a G-rated audience, and may have a bit of road rage. May, I say. It’s not pretty.
Hmm, it sounds like a good time to answer LitWorld’s prompt this week: “What kindness role models have you met through reading?”
Top Five kids’ books where kindness is key.
- Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel
- Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne
- Matilda by Roald Dahl
- Ginger by Charlotte Voake
- Ella the Elegant Elephant by Carmela and Steven D’Amico
Hon, in which books do you think kindness plays a large role?
