Being kind to others and ourselves can:
- make you feel good
- improve relationships
- make yourself and others feel happy
- bond our communities, friends and families
Mentally Healthy Schools have produced a 7 Days of Kindness calendar, which encourages us to carry out two acts of kindness a day - one for others and one for ourselves. You can download the PDF below if you want to join in.
The Smartest Giant In Town
Written by Julia Donaldson & illustrated by Axel Scheffler
George was very happy being the scruffiest giant in town. But one day, when he sees a shop stocking giant-size clothes, he decides it's time to update his image. With smart clothes, George is a new man. However, as he goes home, he meets various animals who desperately need his help! This story is a lovely way to talk about the concept of kindness with children.
