Can she step out of her comfort zone in an effort to make a new friend? Jacob buys two burgers like his mom asked him to. On his way home, he sees a man and his child in need. What will Jacob do? On her way home from school, Elizabeth sees a young boy in a wheelchair having a hard time getting up a ramp. Will she continue her walk home or help the boy?
I absolutely loved the stories in Promise, You Will Be Kind by Yara Yardley. Each story gives a different scenario that allows the character to decide on the best course of action. Each situation is unique and will help kids learn how to make good decisions and inspire them to help others who may need some kind of assistance. The illustrations by Vikki Reds are colorful and help deliver the point of each story in a way that kids can understand and enjoy. I recommend Promise, You Will Be Kind to young readers who enjoy stories that teach important life lessons. I hope to see Yardley and Reds team up for more short stories like these that will help kids learn to make the right decisions and grow into well-adjusted adults.
