When I first read this book with my son, five, and when we stopped on the page “ Be a hug ambassador, …”, he hugged me and said, “ Mom, I love you.” It reminds me that kindness is something that needs to be taught and reinforced by showing them how to be kind. So, if you are looking for a book to share kindness with your kids, why not consider picking up this lovely book.
