Henry is Kind: A Story of Mindfulness

We rated this book:


Henry Is Kind is about a boy named Henry who practices a kind of mindfulness practice called “Heartfulness.” Then, Ms. Snowden’s class learns about kindness. (I’ve learned about kindness with my school counselor, Ms. B., in my school, too!) He says, “Kindness is STUPID!” because he thinks he’s not kind. When his classmates talk about his kind acts, he learns that he is kind. For example, Alice says that he invited her to play basketball, Doris says that Henry gave her a cookie, Rosie says that Henry reached for a book on the top shelf for her, and Edwin says that Henry showed him how to make an origami swan. He made a paper airplane with Dhruv, and they called it “Kindness.” I’ve also learned about kindness at my summer camp, Camp MATES, where campers learn social skills. I don’t think that kindness is stupid. I think that kindness is actually good. I don’t agree with Henry until he learns he is kind. Thanks to my school counselor, Ms. B., and my Camp MATES instructor, Mr. C., I think that I am kind, just like Henry. Readers who want to know more about kindness should enjoy this book.
