Description
WINNER OF A CORETTA SCOTT KING HONOR
Each kindness makes the world a little better
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 anti-bullying message and striking art, it will resonate with readers long after they've put it down.
Chloe and her friends won't play with the new girl, Maya. Every time Maya tries to join Chloe and her friends, they reject her. Eventually Maya stops coming to school. 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.
