Each Kindness

By Jacqueline Woodson

Illustrated by E.B. Lewis

Published by Nancy Paulsen Books, 2012

Chloe sees that there is a new girl in class.  Her name is Maya.  Chloe refuses to play with Maya or show her any kindness, and judge her because she doesn’t wear the nicest clothes.  One day Maya is gone, and when the teacher gives a lesson on the importance of kindness, Chloe is struck by the lost opportunity to show kindness to Maya.

This moving picture book is great for all ages, though probably more appropriate for older elementary kids who can more easily identify with how Maya is treated, and then how Chloe feels when an opportunity is lost.
