Starting the week with this gorgeous book. I’m almost always kind written by Anna Milbourne and illustrated by Asa Gilland.
The artwork is utterly brilliant, right from the cover, endpapers, and all the scrumptious pages throughout.
There are pretty die cut details, highlighting key components of the story and the story itself is realistic with an endearing young boy as it’s lead.
Sometimes actions of others can be completed with the best of intentions but may not be received in quite the same way, for various reasons. The young boy in the story soon learns that though he means well, perhaps he needs to consider how it is to walk in another persons shoes.
He understands that being kind is important but through a sprinkle of humour and considering another’s perspective, readers are taken on a journey with the young boy of what kindness means and how occasionally we will all be met with tricky situations.
One small act of kindness can lead to many others and the final spread in the book beautifully captures this.
The book is out now.
