about the book

for you and the children in your life

Where do you see kindness? No matter who we are or where we come from, when we take a moment to look around, we can see kindness everywhere. With an engaging message and vibrant illustrations, I See Kindness Everywhere can help children (and all of us, truthfully) learn how to notice and appreciate everyday blessings. Ages 2 and up. 

how this book came to be

This book was inspired by an Eastern concept of kindness that can help people of all ages notice and appreciate the kindness of others. The concept is this: any action that benefits you -- large or small, intentional or even unintentional -- is a kindness given to you.  

One night at dinner, author-illustrator Shelley Frost heard her two-year-old daughter exclaim, "Thank you, tomato workers! Thank you, lentil bean workers!" Shelley then realized that even young children could grasp this concept of kindness...and in the process, learn the language of gratitude and respect for others.
