Here are 20 of the very best books about kindness for kids! Absolutely perfect for teaching the most important lessons in life about values, character development and showing empathy towards others, in a world that seems increasingly scary and uncertain. Now more than ever, these are the values we wish to instil in our children. What better place to start than with some inspirational story books?!
I’m a huge believer in trying to teach our children to be kind to others above everything else. If we can all do our part in this when raising this next generation, by showing them that there are many less fortunate than ourselves and that we can actually do small acts of kindness that truly will make a difference.
Indeed I started the Kindness Elves tradition for this very reason, as a true and urgent desire to engage my own children (and now children worldwide who have joined us!) on a mission to do small acts of kindness every day, so that it become ingrained into their very nature.
You can read all about using the Kindness Elves as magical tools for modelling and encouraging acts of kindness here in my introductory post and over on our dedicated Kindness Elves website too. We hope you’ll join our mission at home or in the classroom!
I’ve recently been researching some of the very best books about kindness for kids so that I can build up a repertoire of stories to share with my own kids and also with followers of the Kindness Elves too. So many people have asked for such as resource, so I hope that this list will be useful for you. Pin it to come back to for future reference too.

This is a lovely selection of books, thank you!
Have you heard of the stories ‘Tara and Tyrone’ and ”Pedro the pump’, they’re stories with the imbedded message to ‘smile, love and be kind’. Beautifully written and amazingly illustrated by an inspirational couple, their story alone is worth the read … http://ejtandemonium.com/
