About the Book

Each Kindness

Written by Jacqueline Woodson, Illustrated by E. B. Lewis

Chloe and her friends won't play with the new girl, Maya. Maya is different --- she wears hand-me-downs and plays with old-fashioned toys. Every time Maya tries to join Chloe and her gang, they reject her. Eventually, Maya plays alone, and then stops coming to school altogether. When Chloe's teacher gives a lesson about how even small acts of kindness can change the world, Chloe is stung by the lost opportunity for friendship, and thinks about how much better it could have been if she'd shown a little kindness toward Maya.

This unforgettable book is written and illustrated by the award-winning team that created THE OTHER SIDE and the Caldecott Honor winner COMING ON HOME SOON. With its powerful message and striking art, it will resonate with readers long after they've put it down.
