The Elliott Review:

This book combines completely cute, whimsical illustrations that draw children's eyes with a rhyming text that is sure to entertain as well as encourage altruistic thinking. The focus of the book is to help kids think about small acts of kindness and goodness that they can do. Kids might not think of these things as changing the world, but the book shows kids doing small things like donating money, volunteering, being kind to others - things that actually would change the world if everyone did them.

This book would be a great classroom resource, fostering a discussion or being the anchor text for some kind of service project. It could also help parents talk about these issues with their children.
