The Power of Kindness and Treats! by Patricia A. Brill, Ph.D. is the story of a young dog, Porshe Bella, who is planning a birthday party and asks her friend, Turbo, to go with her and invite her friends to the party on Saturday. Porshe Bella is very excited because she expects to get lots of presents from her friends. Turbo agrees to go with her but suggests that she donates her presents to the dog shelter for dogs waiting to be adopted because they never receive presents. Agreeing to his suggestion, Porshe Bella invites her friends and tells them that she plans to donate their gifts to the dog shelter. Turbo then encourages her to invite other dogs in the park, ones she doesn’t know, to her birthday party. He explains to her the importance of being kind, paying it forward, and helping others make friends.
The Power of Kindness and Treats! by Patricia A. Brill, Ph.D. is a beautiful story about showing kindness, having a generous spirit by sharing with those who have less than you, and being friendly to those who feel left out or get bullied. The wise dog, Turbo, generously and graciously shares his wisdom with Porshe Bella, and she soaks it all up. I loved how Brill makes children aware of their surroundings, of the plight of others. It can be easy to get lost in your world and only see what affects you as a child. Therefore, this story shares a valuable lesson on kindness, awareness, and generosity, values that all children should learn from a young age. I enjoyed reading this book because it illuminates the most important value I want to teach my kids; kindness.
