Book about a bully’s change of heart is a must-read

Jacqueline Woodson’s “Each Kindess” (Nancy Paulsen Books), introduces to young readers (ages 5–8) how a good deed “makes the whole world a little bit better.” Woodson writes the story from the point of view of Chloe, a bully who regrets her missed opportunities to be a friend to the new girl in school. This book, with lovely watercolor illustrations by E.B. Lewis, is an opportunity to start a conversation with your child about being inclusive and having compassion toward peers.
