Bowie Be Kind is a work of fiction for children presented in the form of a picture book penned by author Jason Tuner with illustrations from artist Ana Stretcu. Subtitled “A book about being kind and helping others”, this delightful tale takes its titular character, Bowie, through an adventure where his sole mission is to find ways to be kind to all sorts of different people. From differently-abled people to those with different body types, ages, and fashion senses, the book does not discriminate against any visual judgments that can be made, but preaches kindness and care for everyone, whatever their situation.
Written with a beautiful rhyme scheme and a wonderful presence of kindness and joy, this is a picture book for children and their adult guardians to treasure for a long time to come. The illustrations by artist Ana Stretcu are vibrant and varied, and I was impressed with the level of emotional depth that comes through in such simple, effective artwork and color atmosphere. When this is combined with author Jason Turner’s accessible and highly memorable rhyming patterns, the story really comes to life as a magical experience. I very much enjoyed the fact that there was no stone left unturned in the diversity of the piece, showing people of all types with bright, smiling faces and generally painting a very loving, accepting view of the world in which we would all like to live. Overall, Bowie Be Kind is a highly recommended read for all children to enjoy and take important lessons from.
