Inspired by "The Twelve Days of Christmas," this picture book, adapted for audio, presents the many different forms that kindness can take, from veteran picture book author Irene Latham.

On the first day of kindness,
I will give to you a hug that’s warm and true.

There are many ways to be kind. Follow one girl as she expresses gratitude through kind deeds all her own—a smile or encouraging word or even shared snacks—and discovers one act of kindness inspires another. In this heartwarming lyrical text, twelve acts of everyday kindness are set to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” This joyous listen celebrates how small acts of kindness can be practiced at any age.
Praise for Twelve Days of Kindness:

“Looking for an original sing-along with a familiar tune? “The Twelve Days of Christmas” turns into a dozen kindnesses that kids can practice every day. . . The rhyming text reinforces the lyrical pace, and children will quickly pick up the words as they add on each kindness and repeat the others . . . The imaginative details, illustrated warmly in watercolor, colored pencil, oil, and gouache, show children making valentines, taking out trash, finding treasures in nature, thanking community helpers, and enjoying family time. Use this for Thanksgiving or any time when kindness is a theme to elicit warm responses.” —Booklist
