Children's Books to Teach Kindness

A few weeks ago we had our kids’ parent/teacher conferences to discuss how they are doing in school. At the end of the conference the teacher asked, “Are there any other questions you have?”

“Yes,” I said. “Are they kind to others?”

It’s a question I ask every time.

Don’t get me wrong. Academics are important, but as a parent who strives to raise good humans, doing well in school also means being kind to EVERYONE.

Children’s books are a great way to teach kindness and empathy to kids. They can relate the story to their own lives and hopefully choose kindness when the time comes.

Below are our top children’s books to teach kindness…though there are many not listed that are also great! (more…)
