Kindness Matters: Inspiring Stories of Empathy, Compassion and Kindness

Compiled By: UNESCO MGIEP | Published By: Penguin Random House | Recommended Age: 9+ years


This book is a collection of 50 true-life stories of kindness from across the world. If the current pandemic has taught us anything, it is that everyone is equal; and the only thing that really helped us smile through the first year of the pandemic was people’s kindness and large hearts. Some of the stories are close to home, such as that of Rajappan who is doing a very important job—cleaning plastic waste from Vembanad Lake and other streams of Kumarakom in the Kottayam district in Kerala. Some stories talk about kindness to animals such as the story of Naoto Matsumura, who dedicated his life to protecting animals that were left behind after a tsunami hit Japan. There are stories of people helping girls, educating children, helping bees survive and keeping people healthy. This is a book that teaches you humanity. A must-read for tweens.
