Discover the ripple effects of doing a good deed in this interactive picture book about the importance of kindness. 

A good deed can grow like a seed. . . .

Join a loving community as they work to create a better world. Whether planting a garden or visiting a sick friend, picking up litter or playing music at the senior center, kind actions—no matter how big or small—can spread like a ripple, impacting the lives of others for the better.  

Jennifer Chambliss Bertman’s inspiring text and Holly Hatam’s joyful illustrations celebrate how anyone, young or old, can make a difference. It all starts with a good deed.

The simplified language makes this book of hope perfect for preschool children. The illustrations invite close inspection as you look at the many varied examples of how to help the community, neighbors, and wildlife to stay the effects of human pollution. It also has examples of being a good friend and family member that show others love. I enjoyed the trail of hearts on every page to express how actions lead to positive feelings. I liked that it pointed out that when the problem looks too big and overwhelming look at the kindness and good things happening around you and remember that you must start somewhere for the movement to grow into something big.
