What to Read Link Up: Kindness Books for Kids

Teaching Kids About Kindness

Kindness is something that kids at a very young age pick up on easily. My little ones said “Peez?” and “Tanks-ooh” early on as they learned that these words were like magic. They also showed kindness at an early age through hugs, kisses, pats on the arm, and helping out with little things, like carrying a shopping bag or sharing a snack. Those chubby little fingers offering up a squishy wet goldfish cracker were irresistible.

As they grow, teaching kids to be kind is a part of everyday life. Holding doors, offering to help–doing things that often even go unnoticed, like rolling in a trash can for a neighbor or refreshing the dog’s water. Below is a list of some of our favorite books with the theme of kindness. We love to read these together, and I think these examples really stick with kids over the years and help instill the virtue of kindness.
