Course recommendation. Tells the story of the new girl, Maya, who is mostly ignored by all of the other children. She is occasionally mocked, but completely ostracized. She plays by herself. And then one day she isn't there. The teacher presents a lesson on kindness, how each little thing counts. Chloe decides to be kind to Maya, but she never returns. ( )

The contemporary realistic fiction book Each Kindness, written by Jacqueline Woodson in 2012, is a picture book for elementary and middle school students. The story begins with Maya, a new student, coming into the classroom and whispering hello to the others. Maya wore old clothes and broken shoes, not winter but spring shoes. The other students in the class were silent. The teacher sat her next to Chloe. Maya smiled, but Chloe did not smile back and looked away. Chloe ate her lunch with her friends Kendra and Sophie. Maya tried to engage with the girls and show them her jacks, but they didn't want to play with her. None of the kids wanted to be her friend. The other kids in the class whispered about her, laughed at her, and made fun of her clothes. Kendra called her "never knew" because she wore clothes that looked like they had belonged to someone else before her. Maya was content with playing by herself whether it was Jack's or jump rope. Then, one day Maya did not come to school. Her seat was empty. Their teacher showed them what happens when you drop a stone in water that day. The stone makes a ripple in the water, and the kindness goes out into the world just like the ripple in the water. The teacher had the kids each say a kind act they had done towards someone else, but Chloe couldn't think of any that she had done. Maya never returned to school, even though Chloe hoped she would. Chloe believed that the day Maya returned would be the day Chloe smiled back at her. "Each kindness," Miss Albert said, makes the whole world a little bit better. As Chloe went home that day, she stopped by the pond to throw stones in the water. She thought of all the "kinds things" she should've said to Maya but didn't. She realized that a chance of kindness with Maya was forever gone.

This book follows a girl named Chloe and her perspective when a new girl named Maya joins the class. The children are mean to Maya and leave her out of activities. They say mean things. Later, Maya and her family move away and Chloe regrets the way she treated Maya. This book could be amazing in any second or third-grade library. It could also make an impactful read-out-loud for an SEL discussion on kindness and treating others nicely.

Chloe, the main character, ignores and leaves out the new student in her school named Maya, but afterwards learns the importance of being kind from her teacher. However, Maya ends up moving away and Chloe never gets to make it up to her. This is a sad and beautiful children’s story about the consequences of being cruel to your fellow peers because even though you may realize later that the way you treated that person is wrong and regret it, you may never be able to make up for it, which is what Chloe learns in the end. This is a very good book to teach children that sometimes you won’t have the opportunity to apologize for your mistakes, so just be kind to people and try not to do something cruel that will cause you to regret it for a lifetime.

We're reading Estes' [b:The Hundred Dresses|42369|The Hundred Dresses|Eleanor Estes|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1328875733s/42369.jpg|1000219] for book club in December, so this new picture book immediately struck me as similar. They're both stories about a new girl in school who is treated as an outcast because her clothes are shabby and she seems culturally different from the other kids. And (spoiler alert) in both books the poor bullied girl moves away before the mean girls can realize how terrible they've been and apologize.

I think what makes Each Kindness special is that it distills the essence of a very big subject in kid lit: bullying. The kids in Each Kindness are probably in 2nd or 3rd grade, so this story can speak to very young kids, which is great. It may only take a few minutes to read, but I think it could have a big impact. The central positive image in the book is the ripple effect of a stone dropped in water, which is likened to the effects of doing something kind. It's a great image. It has the same kind of resonance the phrase "pay it forward" had for awhile. It makes you feel like each nice thing you do really can make the world a better place.

It's also interesting how Woodson doesn't make her bully seem that terrible (Chloe's certainly not as bad as Peggy in THD). Because the reader sees things from the bully's POV, we can feel sympathetic for Chloe and sort of understand how she falls into bullying without really choosing it. The bullying depicted in the book is relatively mild, mostly involving ignoring and excluding Maya, never harassing or attacking her.

Of course, this book is message-y, but not forcefully so. When our main character, Chloe, realizes that she should've shown Maya kindness, it's a quiet revelation. And the book in the end is pretty sad. Chloe is stuck with her regrets and we don't know when she'll get another chance to show someone kindness. Like her predecessor Wanda Petronski, we never know what happens to Maya. ( )
