Create a little kindness in the world

Published about 1 year ago by Alexis Alexander

As parents and caregivers, we strive to model kindness. One way to do this is to help children perform acts of kindness for their friends and family members (and remember - no act of kindness is too small). They’ll quickly learn that it feels good to make Grandma a birthday card or bake cookies for a special teacher. Once kids connect with these feelings and values, you’ll be amazed how their empathy and confidence grows! As always, we’ve got a book to support this journey.

If we know one thing to be true, it’s that you’ll never regret being kind to someone.

Think of the last time you did something nice for a friend, relative or even a stranger. Maybe you donated to charity, gave someone flowers, sent a heartfelt birthday card or simply offered a compliment. These acts of kindness can make a real impact on others - and, research shows that they increase our own happiness, too!

Kindness and happiness work on a sort of loop - being kind helps us feel happy, and happiness encourages us to be kind. It’s a wonderful cycle that makes more stronger families, friendships and communities. The more good we put out into the world, the better it will be. (Give it a try!)

In How to Bake a Monster Cake, Peter decides to do something really special for his friend...who just happens to be a monster named Gobbly Goo. He enlists the help of his mother and bakes the perfect cake for a wonderful friend. In the end, Peter feels just as good as Gobbly Goo does!

We hope you’ll enjoy sharing this story with the little ones in your life. Not only does it teach a great lesson about kindness and friendship, it creates endless giggles! (Who doesn’t like bugs in a cake, after all?!)

Thanks for stopping by our blog - if you’d like to purchase the book, head over to this page next.

Questions for Kids:

Why do we have to be careful when we are baking?

Why wouldn’t we put farts and bugs in a real cake?

Why is Peter proud at the end of the story?

Answers will be shared on social, stay tuned!
