This poetic board book full of metaphor is a how-to on treating others with kindness.

From sunrise to sunset, a young child has opportunities to demonstrate kindness—to their parent, their pet and themself—and to receive kindness as well. Written in metaphor with gentle rhymes and hinging on familiar words, Kindness Is a Golden Heart shows young readers how to use their "golden heart" by guiding them through many ways to be kind.

“Accessible and sincere. Kluthe’s use of metaphor is sure to touch the heart strings of children and adults alike…A sweet book for young readers to share a quiet moment with their caregiver and to learn some simple vocabulary around the topic of kindness.”
