This is book number 1 in the Piggy series.
"Kindness makes the world go round--and makes it better. Spare text speaks meaningfully about how small acts of kindness and thoughtfulness can make big differences, both in others' lives and in one's own. Kindness begets kindness and pays it forward: a timely, urgent message for all ages." - Kirkus Reviews
"Kindness is easy when it comes from the heart, as shown by a little pig, who finds solutions to various problems. He helps pick up toys for his friend mouse, offers a smile to a discouraged bunny, and builds a birdhouse for a cold little bird. Simple acts of random kindness (saying thank you, offering a smile, being patient, helping others, nurturing nature, protecting the environment, rescuing the innocent, sharing, cleaning up) can do wonders for small children who are leaning that kindness can make a difference." - TCH Literacy
It's easy to be kind. Offer a smile. Say thank you. Lend a helping hand. You'll see that when you are kind, others are kind too.
A little book about kindness and friendship. For people of all ages.Guided Reading Level G.
