Standing in the audiobook section of the library I overheard a child chatting with the librarian. He was telling her all about his baseball game. Based on her enthusiastic responses she was interested in what he had to say. Moments later she came in my section and with excitement exclaimed to his mom, “Mrs. X is really kind.”

His mom responded, “Yes, yes she is.”

Interesting the first thing the child commented on was the kindness of the librarian. He couldn’t have been older than six.

Friends, children pay attention to our words and actions. They recognize and love kindness. They soak in how we engage and replicate it through their actions. We can learn a lot from kids. Kindness Matters.
