About Kindness
by Jacy Lee

This beautiful children’s verse book is about kindness – what it is, how to express it, and the positive impact that it can have on individuals and around the world. Written as a three-stanza poem, About Kindness employs rhythms, rhymes, and repetition to teach young children different mindful ways of expressing kindness in their everyday lives: through meeting people’s needs in the first stanza; through empathy and understanding in the second stanza; and through care and concern for their community and planet in the third stanza. The illustrations show that acts of kindness can inspire more kindness, happiness, and togetherness in diversity. To add fun to the messages in the book, readers may engage in a special hunt of “Find the Heart” throughout the book. The language and illustrations are straightforward and easily understood, making About Kindness a perfect introduction for all children about the many ways to make a positive difference with what they say and do. This book supports emotional intelligence, and diversity, and helps to equip children with a social and emotional toolbox that will carry them through childhood into adulthood.

As a believer in the power of kindness, Jacy Lee decided to write and illustrate a short verse book about kindness to help young children understand what kindness is and how it can make a positive impact in the world. Her hope is that the children who read and re-read her book, or have it read to them, will not only practise kindness during their childhood but throughout their life. Jacy recently retired from a career in educational leadership and policy, and now devotes her time to caring for her elderly mother. She also volunteers in various capacities including as a volunteer counsellor at a counselling centre, and as a community representative on a local government committee. Her educational background includes a Master of Law from the University of Cambridge, and a Doctor of Education from the University of British Columbia. She is also the proud godmother and aunt to many lucky children.
