Kindness Opprtunities

A child faces but does not fall for selfishness or lack of neighborly concern. This book is beautifully illustrated. Another George Saunders' successful effort to keep the reader awake THINKING.


What a thrilling find!

I stumbled upon this book by sheer chance and knew as soon as I opened the packing it came in that this book was something very special. To begin with it has a vellum dust cover, beautiful orange "gapper"dot end papers, and beyond fabulous illustrations by Lane Smith. But the story inside is what will make you pull this book to your chest when you're through. It's strange, sad, sweetness will have you associating with it's theme in a very personal way. After having read this book I proceeded to purchase many more copies and give them away to friends, teachers, relatives and even one librarian.
