Now more than ever, a message of hope, compassion, empathy, and understanding is needed.
Now more than ever, we need to come together as a nation of beautifully diverse people and encourage and implement KINDNESS.
Kindness is a word that many of us are hearing more and more thanks to a concerning, tense, and sometimes scary 2016. It something we all as humans need to be mindful of especially when it comes to being role models for kids. As always, encouraging and teaching kindness to children starts at home and in the classroom.
Powerhouse Children’s Publishing Company, Scholastic, has noted that books and activities that promote kindness will be a key trend in 2017…
…and the Multicultural Children’s Book Day Team couldn’t agree more. With that in mind we put our collective heads together and with the help of authors Jarrett Krosoczka and DEMI, have created a very special downloadable MCBD Kindness Classroom Kit for all teachers, parents, librarians, and educators to utilize.
