    Want to Feel Hopeful About the Future? 
    Share in inspirational stories of generosity written by children of all ages that reveal their surprisingly insightful feelings about kindness and compassion. 
    Look back at why the Random Acts of Kindness series was such a sensation. When the adult version of Random Acts of Kindness was first published, hundreds of teachers across the country gave assignments to their students to write about unsolicited acts that they had experienced or initiated. Teachers sent the results to Conari Press which then put out a call for similar stories in a teacher’s magazine. Stories poured in and the result was Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness. Whimsical and funny to moving and thoughtful, Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness helps restore your belief in the potential for goodness in man. 
    In Kid’s Random Acts of Kindness, you will see how children are the truest examples of open-hearted giving:Kids are hopeful. They believe they can change, easily and often. They look forward not back. They like to think about what could be, not what was.Kids are possibility addicts. They’re always working on something. If you listen you’ll hear a language of hopefulness and striving, an elasticity that keeps them going and trying.Kids love to master challenges. They want to try new things, move in new directions, be productive. They are risk takers, sometimes out of faith, sometimes out of desperation. More than anything else, children want and need to belong, to partner, to collaborate. 
    Readers of other books in the Random Acts of Kindness series and motivational books and stories like Chicken Soup for the Soul: Random Acts of Kindness, A Pebble for Your Thoughts, I've Been Thinking…, and You Can Do All Things will love the encouraging, inspirational stories in Kid's Random Acts of Kindness.

    Excerpt:
    "The life of William McKinley affords a shining example to all American boys of what honesty, perseverance, and a strict attention to duty can accomplish. The twenty-fifth President of our Nation was born in a humble home, of humble parentage, and had to make his own way in life at an early age. When little more than a boy he taught school for a living, and at the age of eighteen he became a private in the army. He served through the whole of the great Civil War, and so faithful was he and so heroic that he became first a commissary sergeant, next a lieutenant, then a captain, and, finally, left the army a full-fledged major, twenty-two years old."
