Inspired by "The Twelve Days of Christmas," this picture book illustrates 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.” Along with vibrant and warm illustrations, this joyous read-aloud celebrates how small acts of kindness can be practiced at any age.
