Cara's Kindness by Kristi Yamaguchi

You've heard of paying it forward, haven't you?  Where you do something nice and then ask the person you helped to pass it on to someone else who needs help.  Cara has this down.

Source Books/Jabberwocky sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can grab a copy now.

This is a sweet little picture book that John Lee illustrated.  You can tell by the cover the animals are whimsical and big-eyed.

Cara the cat helps Darby the dog.  He's not sure about skating but she helps him out onto the floor and he finds out skating is fun!  She tells Darby to pass it on.

Darby is having lunch when he hears a polar bear cub's stomach growling on the other bench.  He offers to share his lunch.  The polar bear cub retrieves the monkey's ball in turn.  And on on it goes with everyone much, much happier than they were before.

The especially nice part is when the last one helped writes some music for Cara's routine.  She just couldn't find the right music but he did.

Here's a nice read that helps children see that being kind is a good thing.
