Each kindness makes the world a little better

Chloe and her friends won't play with the new girl, Maya. Maya is different--she wears hand-me-downs and plays with old-fashioned toys. Every time Maya tries to join Chloe and her gang, they reject her. Eventually, Maya plays alone, and then stops coming to school altogether. When Chloe's teacher gives a lesson about how even small acts of kindness can change the world, Chloe is stung by the lost opportunity for friendship, and thinks about how much better it could have been if she'd shown a little kindness toward Maya.

This unforgettable book is written and illustrated by the award-winning team that created The Other Side and the Caldecott Honor winner Coming On Home Soon. With its powerful message and striking art, it will resonate with readers long after they've put it down.

Synopsis:

Beautifully rendered in Lewis's striking, lifelike watercolor illustrations, this story by Woodson is a moving, lyrical narrative told in the hopeful voice of a child confused about the fence that divides the black side of town from the white side. Full color.

Synopsis:

In a country struggling with acceptance, hope can come in many different forms.

 

As a boy, Hector loved playing soccer in his small Johannesburg township. He dreamed of playing on a real pitch with the boys from another part of the city, but apartheid made that impossible. Then, in 1990, Nelson Mandela was released from prison, and apartheid began to crumble. The march toward freedom in South Africa was a slow one, but when the beloved Bafana Bafana national soccer team won the African Cup of Nations, Hector realized that dreams once impossible could now come true.

 

This poignant story of friendship artfully depicts a brief but critical moment in South Africas history and the unique role that sports can play in bringing people together.

This book is a great book to share with students as it is about friendship and racial barriers that affected people in the past. It is written in a way that is sensitive to all.
