The Kid Should See This

Kindness, a Thought Bubble by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

What constitutes a life worthy of being remembered? In this award-winning 2010 Thought Café video about kindness, the late New York Times best-selling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal asks, “How do you want to be remembered?”

“What have you filled the world with? In remembering you, which words will others choose? I wonder. Don’t you? Of all the possible adjectives, I think that if the word ‘kind’ appears in the mix, chances are very good that you have led a life worthy of being remembered. Kindness acts as a worthy marker that way.”

Though we’ve yet to read Rosenthal’s book recommendation, we’re very familiar with the many popular children’s books she’s authored, including Dear Girl, That’s Me Loving You, Spoon, and Little Pea. We also recommend the book Be Kind by Pat Zietlow Miller and Jen Hill.
