Review: Cara's Kindness

28755318 Cara's Kindness by Kristi Yamaguchi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**I received a free copy from Edelweiss and the Publisher in exchange for an honest review**

When you pass on some kindness, it might make its way back to you...

Cara the Cat is struggling with picking the perfect song for her new ice-skating routine. But when a friend in need turns up at the rink, Cara drops everything to
lend a helping hand. All she asks is that he pay it forward! Before long, Cara's kindness is passed all around...and might even make its way back home!

Kristi Yamaguchi is an ice-skating Olympic gold medalist and world champion who knows how to lend a helping hand! As founder of the Always Dream Foundation, Kristi helps promote early childhood literacy. Through her newest picture book, Kristi inspires children of all ages to pay it forward!

Cover: Pretty!
Rating 4 Stars!
Characters: Caring
Plot: An Entertaining Lesson in Kindness
Overall: A fun story about friends
Recommend? Yes!

Another fun children's book, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I expected your average children's book, but this one make a point to stand out by showing that kindness knows no bounds, and is kind to everyone. I really enjoyed this sweet book. I love that it teaches both kindness and to pass it on. It's also great to see a blind character who is not only treated as a friend and equal, but who is also shown to have gifts of his own to contribute. That's something I don't see often in children's books, and I loved it!

Her motto is Always Dream, and Kristi's accomplishments prove that dreams can come true with hard work and dedication. Her new book, Dream Big, Little Pig, is an extension of her philosophy, and of Kristi herself."
