Each kindness makes the world a little better.

Chloe and her friends won’t play with the new girl, Maya. Every time Maya tries to join Chloe and her friends, they reject her. Eventually Maya stops coming to school. When Chloe’s teacher gives a lesson about how even small acts of kindness can change the world, Chloe is stung by the lost opportunity for friendship, and thinks about how much better it could have been if she’d shown a little kindness toward Maya.

With its powerful anti-bullying message, this unforgettable book will resonate with readers long after they’ve put it down.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Combining realism with shimmering impressionistic washes of color, Lewis turns readers into witnesses as kindness hangs in the balance…Woodson…again brings an unsparing lyricism to a difficult topic.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This quiet, intense picture book is about the small actions that can haunt…Woodson’s spare, eloquent free verse…tell[s] a story for young kids that will touch all ages.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Lyrical and stylistically tight writing…gives opportunity for countless inferences and deep discussion…With growing income disparity and bullying on the rise, this story of remorse and lost opportunity arrives none too soon.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Woodson’s affecting story, with its open ending, focuses on the withholding of friendship rather than outright bullying…A good conversation starter.”

    Horn Book

  • “Unfolds with harsh beauty and the ominousness of opportunities lost.”

    Kirkus Reviews
