I Can Be Kind
Scripture teaches us to love our neighbors by treating them with kindness and respect. One aspect of kindness includes manners. Parents are looking for fun, creative ways to teach their children polite behavior in a society where rudeness is often the status quo. We believe I Can Be Kind is a great resource for parents, grandparents, and Sunday school teachers as they seek to develop these behaviors in their children.
When Marcus moved next door to John, they knew instantly they’d be friends. Now John and Marcus do almost everything together.

Based on the friendship of real-life best friends Patrick Gray and Justin Skeesuck, The Push teaches kids that people of all abilities have important roles to play and that we’re all better together than we are on our own.

This isn’t about me. This story, I mean. So already you got a reason to hang it up. At least that’s what Mrs. Smith, our English teacher, says.
But the story is about ten-year-old Laney Grafton and the new girl in her class—Lara Phelps, whom everyone bullies from the minute she shows up. Laney is just relieved to have someone else as a target of bullying. But instead of acting the way a bullied kid normally acts, this new girl returns kindness for a meanness that intensifies . . . until nobody remains unchanged, not even the reader.
In a unique and multi-layered story, with equal parts humor and angst, Laney communicates the art of storytelling as it happens, with chapter headings, such as: Character, Setting, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax. And she weaves an unforgettable tale of a new girl who transforms an entire class and, in the process, reveals the best and worst in all of us.
This is a powerful and emotional story, which School Library Journalcalled “Thoroughly enjoyable and unexpectedly wry, . . . as intelligent as it is succinct.”
