The Kindness Quilt by Indigo Johnson is about a young dinosaur named Dino who goes on a big adventure in the mountains to find his purpose when he tragically gets lost. His loving mother and father search all over for Dino with the help of their animal friends in the mountains, but Dino remains lost. Finally, a unicorn comes to share the tale of the kindness quilt where every time someone does an act of kindness, the patches piece together to become bigger and brighter, shedding more light into the world to help find lost loved ones. So the animals and creatures in the kingdom and mountains start doing small and big acts of kindness to help find Dino.
Indigo Johnson writes this children’s book with a poignant simplicity. She captures a whimsical quality throughout the story with colorful illustrations. The author introduces us to a world of dragons, mermaids, fairies, unicorns, and what looks like Big Foot. I enjoyed it at face value at first, but when I understood the book’s dedication to Ryan and the backstory of why this book was written, I felt teary-eyed. It touched me to see how the whole community banded together in their many acts of kindness to help Ryan Shtuka’s parents and family search for him when he went missing in British Colombia. I highly recommend it as a simple reminder to everyone to live with compassion and for any acts of kindness to lift our humanity.
