Esteemed bullying expert Trudy Ludwig joins Little Eliot illustrator Mike Curato in a tale of kindness. When one child reaches out in friendship to a classmate who seems lonely, she begins a chain reaction of kindness that ripples throughout her school and her community. One kind act begets another, small good deeds make way for bigger ones, and eventually the whole neighborhood comes together to build something much greater than the sum of its parts.
