Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day that many people spend time offering service to their community – small acts to make a difference. Volunteerism can start with the littlest ones in your family and sharing some of these stories is a great way to teach kids kindness and service. These books range from one small act of kindness that ripples through a community to even larger acts such as purchasing an animal for a family overseas which can make a big difference to their way of life. But no matter what you have to offer, teaching children kindness and to think of others is something that I think everyone can do. Holding the door for someone, smiling a hello as you pass them by and asking another child to play together are all simple ways to teach kids to think of others around them. Share some of these great stories for Martin Luther King Jr. Day and share some other titles with me!
