Kindness Grows by Britta Teckentrup


From Goodreads:

Angry words cause a crack to open up and widen, but find out what happens when kindness begins to blossom in this thought-provoking book.


After reading the story to the class, process it with these or similar questions:

  • Did you like the book?
  • How do you think Lili feels on the cover?
  • Do you have any traits that take after someone else in your family?
  • How do you think Lili felt when the kids made fun of things she liked about herself?
  • Do you think they meant to hurt her feelings?
  • If they didn’t mean it, does it still hurt?
  • Did you like her idea of the butterfly?
  • Will you remember Lili’s hurt feelings the next time you hear somebody else make fun of someone and step in?

*In the back of the book are some additional activities to go along with it!
