World Kindness Day, and Mr. Rogers

24 Picture Books To Teach Students About Kindness

World Kindness Day is coming up on Nov. 13 and I thought I’d get the information out a little early- let’s look for ways to teach about kindness all month long!  Here is a list of book resources to share with your children- I will be reading some of these books to some classes at school.  World Kindness day also overlaps with Cardigan Day! Cardigan Day celebrates the work of Mr. Rogers, who taught adults and children about kindness, among many other things.  Last year I bought this lovely book for my daughters- “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood- The Poetry of Mr. Rogers”.  I love having Mr. Rogers’ song lyrics written and illustrated in this book, it is so beautiful.
