The reviewer, Emily Bazelon pronounces Each Kindnesspretty tough-minded for a children’s story….Still, precisely because the book is unflinching, I can imagine it doing good in the hands of a wise parent or teacher. “

Of Because Amelia Smiled, she says,  “There’s nothing the least bit objectionable, but there’s also little that’s memorable.”
Bazelon likes The Forgiveness Garden best. I can see “The Forgiveness Garden” resonating especially with children in war-torn or conflict-ridden communities. It opens a door to peacemaking and invites children to imagine for themselves what’s on the other side. And isn’t that often the first step toward kindness?”
