Henry is Kind is the second book in the Peace of Mind Storybook Series. This series offers young readers and listeners engaging stories about mindfulness, brain science, kindness and solving conflicts peacefully.

Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Real Love, wrote about Henry is Kind:

Linda Ryden's book about heartfulness practice is bright, fun and engaging, which is wonderful because it means kids will love it. And, the book provides an easy way for teachers and parents to help children understand and enjoy being kind, which means adults will love it too. It is a pleasure to think of the benefits Henry is Kind may bring to children and families.

In this engaging story for elementary school students, Ms. Snowden and her class practice sending kind thoughts to the people they love, and launch a class Kindness Project. There is only one problem: Henry can't think of one kind thing he has done, and decides kindness is stupid

Henry's discovery of the many ways he can be kind will inspire young readers to use the simple mindfulness practice taught in the book to develop their own capacities for kindness.

A guide for parents and teachers is included to help reinforce the mindfulness practice taught in the story. Henry is Kind complements lessons on heartfulness and kindness taught in the Peace of Mind Core Curriculum Series.
