Children's Books about Kindness


No matter how young or old we are, we can all use a reminder to be kind. These children’s books about kindness encourages kids and adults alike to be kind to those around us, including our friends, teachers, neighbors, siblings, and coworkers.

Pick a few books from the list below to check out from the library, order online, or pick up at your local bookstore.

As the old saying goes, “You’ll never regret being kind.” As we teach our children the importance of being kind to the people in our lives, let’s remember that kindness begins with us. Let’s be kind adults and teach our little ones by example.
