Be Kind

product image
$17.99

A New York Times bestseller!

"These days, it seems more important than ever for books to show young people how to act with thoughtfulness, civility, and kindness." --The New York Times Book Review

When Tanisha spills grape juice all over her new dress, her classmate wants to make her feel better, wondering: What does it mean to be kind?

From asking the new girl to play to standing up for someone being bullied, this moving story explores what kindness is, and how any act, big or small, can make a difference--or at least help a friend.

With a gentle text from the award-winning author of Sophie's Squash, Pat Zietlow Miller, and irresistible art from Jen Hill, Be Kind is an unforgettable story about how two simple words can change the world.

    Drawing God

    product image
    $17.99

    Picasso's artistic inspiration takes hold of young Emma's faith imagination in this beautifully illustrated debut picture book about how we all see God differently.

    "This urge to draw something beyond spectacular would not leave my side. 'What should I draw?' I thought. I sat quietly, listening to my mind and heart. That's when I heard their whisper and I decided to draw God."

    Emma tries again and again and again to draw God, but her classmates can't see God in any of her drawings. Emma finally realizes that she doesn't need their approval.

    "I knew I had drawn God. God knew I had drawn God, and maybe Picasso knew, too. That finally felt like enough."

    But when Emma returns to school on the following Monday, something beyond spectacular happens.

    Drawing God is a story for children to discover what inspires their very own faith imagination and to realize the contagious faith that lives powerfully within them.
