For a child who witnesses someone bullying another person, it’s hard to know what to do. You know you should choose kindness, but how? This simple yet powerful picture book shows kids exactly what it looks like to choose kindness.
From a New York Times bestselling husband-and-wife team, I Walk with Vanessa tells the story of one girl who inspires a community to stand up to bullying. Inspired by real events, the book explores the feelings of helplessness and anger that arise in the wake of seeing a classmate treated badly, and shows how a single act of kindness can lead to an entire community joining in to help. By choosing only pictures to tell their story, the creators underscore the idea that someone can be an ally without having to say a word. With themes of acceptance, kindness, and strength in numbers, this timeless and profound feel-good story will resonate with readers young and old.
