    My husband read this to my daughter s fourth grade class recently, and they were disappointed by the ending I, however, think that is one reason it is such a great book Not only does it demonstrate to kids that their actions have consequences, but it also shows them that sometimes you don t get a second chance to make things right when you make the wrong choice Every time they leave a child out, it hurts.I had personal experience with changing to a new school in fifth grade and being not only My husband read this to my daughter s fourth grade class recently, and they were disappointed by the e...

    I personally really do find Jacqueline Woodson s Each Kindness incredibly sad and even at times rather overly depressing, mostly because when we moved to Canada from Germany in 1976 when I was ten , my experiences at school were definitely very much like Maya s Although my teacher did everything she could to include me, to many of my so called classmates and unfortunately also to some of their parents, as I was also told by a number of fellow students that they supposedly were not allowed to I personally really do find Jacqueline Woodson s Each Kindness incredibly sad and even at times rather overly depressing, mostly because when we moved to Canada from Germany in 197...

    Love Jacqueline Woodson Did not like this book.I think I m the only one.From page one, the tone of this book put me off Even though she wasn t making a speech, it felt so didactic I just couldn t like it In my mind, the narrator droned on in a depressing monotone The story was entirely hopeless There was no spark of light at the end, no spot of hope My imaginary last line was, And then the entire rest of my life sucked, too Harsh Yes, I know It felt harsh when I read it It s The 100 D Love Jacqueline Woodson Did not like this book.I think I m the only one.From page one, the tone of this book put me off Even though she wasn t making a speech, it felt so didactic I just couldn t like it In my mind, the narrator droned on in a depressing monotone The story was entirely hopeless There was no spark of light at the end, no spot of hope My imaginary last line was, And then the entire rest of my life sucked, too Harsh Yes, I know It felt harsh when I read it It s The 100 Dresses in picture book form, but with no understanding of the situation s cause and with no hope at the end Maya was just gone, and there was nothing to be done If Chloe had had another chance to be kind to someone who was an outcast, it might ve made the bookcliche, but would ve added some hope, too As it is, I was left wondering whether she would be kind next time, or would jus...

    What I love about this book is that it doesn t have a happy ending To open this lesson I had the students take out a piece of paper and then crumble it up Then I asked them to smooth it out so that there were no wrinkles Then we discussed how the wrinkles are like imprints That when we insult and hurt it leaves wrinkles and no matter how many sorries or things we do to smooth it out the scars are still there At the end of the book we had a brief discussion about kindness, but also our r What I love about this book is that it doesn t have a happy ending To open this lesson I had the students take out a piece of paper and then crumble it up Then I asked them to smooth it out so that there were no wrinkles Then we discussed how the wrinkles are like imprints That when we insult and hurt it leaves w...

    This is a difficult story one that rings so true, but is probably a bit hard for many children But it s an important story, too, whether a child is on either side of the story The book is about bullying, but it s the subtle kind of bullying, the ignoring and whispering and refusal to acknowledge someone I think this kind of bullying can be the worst, because there s no physical harm, but the emotional scars can be even deeper We read this story together and our girls were so sad They coul This is a difficult story one that rings so true, but is probably a bit hard for many children But it s an important story, too, whether a child is on either side of the story The book is about bullying, but it s the subtle kind of bullying, the ignoring and whispering and refusal to acknowledge someone I think this kind of bullying can be the worst, because there s no physical harm, but the emotional scars can be even deeper We read this story together and our girls were so sad They could not understand why someone would turn away the new girl I just hope that they remember that story and defend someone who is being treated poorly And of course, I hope with all of my heart that they never experience what Maya did.Overall, I thought this book was very well written and I th...

    One of my favorite books of 2012 is Jacqueline Woodson s Each Kindness, and now, I am happy to say, it has won the 2013 Charlotte Zolotow Award given by the Cooperative Children s Book Center The story begins one snowy, wintry day when a new girl named Maya is introduced to Chloe s elementary school class The first thing Chloe notices is that Maya s clothes are shabby and she has on spring shoes in winter Sitting next to Chloe, Maya makes one friendly overture after another but ea...

    This story is incredibly mournful and poignant I was near tears throughout this book I would have been as deeply affected when I was a child It reminded me so much of the short children s novel The Hundred Dresses, which touched me deeply as an elementary school student Maybe it s because I just read this picture book, but at the moment it feels like an evenpowerful story to me I do wish the teacher had done the kindness exercise earlier, preferably immediately noticing what was...

    We re reading Estes The Hundred Dresses 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 es We re reading Estes The Hundred Dresses 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 ...

    Maybe because Maya s new, maybe because she seems a little different from the rest of her classmates, or maybe for some secret, never revealed reason, Chloe and her friends ignore the new girl s offerings of friendship They refuse to play with her or even return her smiles and call her names because of her hand me down clothes When Chloe fails to appear for class on the same day that the students teacher gives a lesson on the ripple effects of our actions, Chloe realizes too late that she has Maybe because Maya s new, maybe because she seems a little different from the rest of her classmates, or maybe for some secret, never revealed reason, Chloe and her friends ignore the new girl s offerings of friendship They refuse ...

    I liked this book a lot I thought that the slightly out of focus aspect of the illustrations gave it the quality of memory, and this is what the book is about Chloe s deeply regretful memory of a lesson that she did not learn soon enough I loved that it was painfully realistic about this common form of bullying and that no saccharine ending was employed or for that matter, a saccharine prelude in the form of a lesson from the tea...
