A New York Times bestseller!
These days, it seems more important than ever for books to show young people how to act with thoughtfulness, civility, and kindness. The New York Times Book Review
When Tanisha spills grape juice all over her new dress, her classmate wants to make her feel better, wondering: What does it mean to be kind?
From asking the new girl to play to standing up for someone being bullied, this moving story explores what kindness is, and how any act, big or small, can make a differenceor at least help a friend.
With a gentle text from the award-winning author of Sophie's Squash, Pat Zietlow Miller, and irresistible art from Jen Hill, Be Kind is an unforgettable story about how two simple words can change the world.

Pat Zietlow Miller knew she wanted to be a writer ever since her seventh-grade English teacher read her paper about square-dancing skirts out loud in class and said: This is the first time anything a student has written has given me chills. (Thanks, Mrs. Mueller! You rock!) Pat started out as a newspaper reporter before she joined an insurance company as an editor. Now, she writes insurance information by day and childrens books by night. Her first book, SOPHIES SQUASH, won the Golden Kite Award, an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor and a Charlotte Zolotow honor. Her second book, WHEREVER YOU GO, won a Crystal Kite award. Pat has one wonderful husband, two delightful daughters and two pampered cats. She doesnt watch much TV, but she does love Chopped.
