Summary
I Am a Kindness Hero follows the adventures of a young boy as he practices kindness throughout his day, from rescuing a puppy to standing up to bullies to helping his young sister tie her shoe. The book celebrates gentleness and vulnerability in boys, and shows that true strength and leadership come from treating those around you with love and respect. Kindness comes in many forms, which we see throughout the book, including taking care of the Earth, listening to others, being happy when someone else wins, and that it's often more important to be kind than to be right. A standalone book, I Am a Kindness Hero also serves as a companion to I Am a Warrior Goddess, by the same author and illustrator, which inspires strength, leadership, and empowerment in young girls. I Am a Warrior Goddess has sold 25K copies since its release in Spring 2018. I Am a Kindness Hero brings parents, teachers, and childcare providers a beautiful picture book that introduces a new kind of role model for boys.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The team behind I Am a Warrior Goddess returns for this companion picture book, which utilizes the refrain "I am" while following a dark-haired, brown-skinned child with blue eyes who is kind in all aspects of life. Lemniscates's textural artwork shows the child respecting flora, fauna, and fellow humans: surveying a vegetable garden ready for harvest ("I am... a guardian of the Earth"), carrying an elderly woman's groceries across the street ("Heroes are kind to strangers and to friends"), defending a younger kid ("I fight for kindness when I stand up for others"), and more. Through small, individual acts, the child shows compassion and aims to make the world a better place. Though Adams's text sometimes veers toward the didactic ("I battle my jealousy when I high-five the winner"), the book should still encourage young readers: "If I fight for kindness, then maybe others will too." Ages 4--8. (Jan.)"
