Creating Community ~ Lesson Plans I like the empathy ones. Good scenarios.
These five books teach giving and kindness without directly saying it. They are books with rich illustrations and deep messages that will make readers think, change, and grow. #Thanksgiving

A sweet book about an elderly lady who is kind to the neighborhood children. When she gets sick and frail, the little ones think of ways to be kind to her as she was to them. It might make you cry.
