What if everybody chose to be kind?

If you tell someone that they can’t play with you, there’s no harm done, right? But what if everybody said that? What if everybody forgot to be kind…and made fun of other kids’ artwork at school, or told a fib, or refused to share with a person in need? The world wouldn’t be a very nice place to live. But what if everybody thought before

    I got this via Amazon First Reads on their Prime Deals days.. they had all six Kindle picks available for download:).

    Story: 4 stars


    A cute book I think everyone should read to their kids. (Definitely will with my niece). Some kids and parents I see at work sometimes.. makes me think about how my parents would just give us a Look and we'd behave.

    I don't want to say much and spoil it but would definitely recommend. :)

    This is a great book for teaching children the importance of language and behavior. Manners and politeness go a long way and hurtful words can make a big impact. Definitely a book you should read with your child as they begin school and socialize more with other children.

    One of my favorite perks of being an Amazon prime member is the free book each month with the Kindle Firsts program. For Prime Day they did something awesome and let you get all six books free! Of course I downloaded all of them. Normally I don't read children's books but this was a part of the bunch so I thought why not? There's a good lesson taught in which kindness and manners are important. Children should learn the effect their words have. Telling someone that their appearance is weird or u ...more

    What If everybody did?

    I loved the book WHAT IF EVERYBODY DID? I began my school year with that book last year. During the year I would occasionally hear a student say. "What if everybody did?" I would smile knowing the message of the book caught on. Now this one presents our words to others in that way. Both books have enough humor to get in the message and do it with a smile.

    Cute illustrations. However, I think it would have benefited if it stuck more to its description "What if everyone chose to be kind?" It all dwelt on what happened if no one was kind right up until the last page when it had one kind example... Hmm.
    What really makes me scratch my head is that while I see this is trying to have some good message for kids, I honestly would have found this a pretty boring book when I was a kid into picture books. Granted, that wasn't a long period, but still.

    Very Nice Book

    Meant sure what to expect because I worried it might be a scolding book. It's hot. It's very pleasant and demonstrates manners in a very positive way. I would love to share this with my students.

    Good Lessons

    What a good lesson book for kids. With beautiful eye drawing pictures. I will definitely be sharing this book and phrase with my kids.

    Not what I thought

    I thought the book would focus more on how we should talk nicely to others. Instead I felt like it only focused on the mean things kids could say to each other. Only the last page shows the girls being nice and talking nicely to others. I am so glad I didn't read this with my kids. I will not be reading this to my kids.

    I liked the message and the illustrations, though I think the character turnaround didn't make since. I would've liked for there to have been a slower progressing. It would have made more sense if someone left her out and once she felt bad she realized that her behavior caused others to feel that way and made a turnaround. Instead, everyone just repeated the same thing and eventually she gave it thought.

    Charming object lessons on applying verbal filters

    Thinking before speaking is something the world could use a lot more of. Some kids learn to be intentionally mean, and most children naively blurt out things that can hurt feelings at some time. This charming and colorfully illustrated book teaches kids to apply filters in a playful series of real life situations. In an extended thought experiment, the author asks kids to put themselves in others' shoes and consider how people would feel if every

    Unfortunate beginning

    I completely understand the lesson the author is trying to teach primary grade students. It is a valuable lesson. But the first page does not take into account the way her story could be interpreted by these young students.

    She begins with a girl who is asked if others can play with her responds with,”No boys allowed.” To the question, “What if everybody said that?” Examples are given, “no freckles allowed,” “no climbing for girls,” and “no big kids.”

    I was able to grab this book as part of my crack dealer's continued lure to feed my addiction through offering all 6 July First Reads for free as part of Amazon's Deal Days. Thanks, Amazon!

    This was a cute, inviting book with an important message. Positive, supporting words/actions are more powerful than negative.

    The reason I marked this book down a star because right up to the last page, it was a five star review is that I thought the author could have given more examples than just one of posit

    Formatting Issues

    This book was incompatible with my Kindle. When I tried to read it on my phone’s kindle app, it was too small to read and would not allow me to enlarge it. When I turned my phone sideways, it enlarged the print, but cutoff a third of the page. I really tried to overcome the obstacles and managed to piece together the storyline. Great concept, but issues in the delivery, thus the one star rating.

    Illustrations mainly featured negative facial expressions. Good desire to teach kind

    Subtle Way To Drive A Point Home

    The book is like a spoonful of sugar - it makes the medicine to down easier for children as well as adults! The illustrations are great which lends to grasping the truth in picture form. I also think children can identify with being of having been on both sides of the coin. It is definitely worth a share for your own kiddos as well as others. Makes me think it is always good to have stories like this on my Kindle so I can share. Great for helping a frustrated Mom

    Very thought provoking!

    This is a very thought provoking book for all children and even adults need to read. I believe this will help combat bullying, envy and jealousy. It will get the individual thinking about what happened, should they have said that, how should they handle themselves differently.
    I would recommend this book to be in all Elementary, Middle, High School libraries and all public libraries to for everyone to read. I would also recommend for the librarians to offer it as the book t

    Wonderful!

    This book is well written, well illustrated and should be in every classroom. As a former teacher of thirty years, I can see this being used during the first days of school and repeated on the first of the month. A book to be incorporated in the year’s curriculum. Thoughtfulness and kindness can not be stressed enough. I’m so glad I chose this as my monthly selection!

    Better books about fairness and sharing

    Less about showing equal treatment and more about putting a negative light on assertive behavior. The first example makes no sense since it’s about gender but someone with mobility access issues seems to be offended. The message is very confused and this book looks more like it’s fulfilling a contract obligation.

    It’s free and that may be all some can afford but you would be better off with a library book.

    Needs more positive re-enforcement

    I have a very negative child, and we resonated a lot with the words the character used, but I would like to see a revision where each negative comment was met not only with “what if everyone said that?” but with a positive alternative. What could they have said? Having only one example at the very end and no real “light bulb” moment for the character, left us feeling very anti-climactic.
    Cute illustrations and relatable theme!

    Funny and sweet

    This book is funny and sweet, as well as thought-provoking and poignant. It covers quite a lot in just a few pages, and the illustrations carry the message further. A good reminder about sharing, and bullying, participation and effort, apathy and inclusion. Highly recommended.

    Not expecting it

    It changes the argument of would you follow this person of they jumped. It makes kids see their choices could lead to be with no friends. More so it shows the lasting effect of being selfish which kids are mostly by nature. Thereby it helps to include other perceptions and wants

    This was a first read pick for the month. Cute illustrations and a good message that all children need to learn. My only criticism is for the kindle edition. I wish each page was shown separately instead of a landscape double page view. It is hard to share with a group when the pictures are reduced to half size.

    Book that will make you think!

    I enjoyed this young reader book. There are many lessons taught here. Be kind, patient and perhaps most important of all; think before you speak.
    The pictures are great and make the book better. You have to look carefully to see what is happening.
    This is a great book to be read aloud or for new readers to read by themselves.

    Great message!

    This is the kind of book we need in today's society. People are so quick to pass judgment on each other and they don't keep it to themselves. Let's spread the message of love and acceptance to all and teach our children, especially to do so. This book has cute illustrations and a simple but profound message!

    Adorable with an important lesson

    This book is cute and teaches an important lesson. The illustrations are adorable! It's not too wordy and the language is clear and focused. It's definitely appropriate for the listed age level. I read it to my kids at home and they enjoyed it. I look forward to being able to read it to the kids at work!

    Great kids book

    I haven't read this to my grandsons yet but I will. Humorous while getting the !lesson across that what you say matters. This is better for kids who are a little older, say 5, who will understand the lesson. I plan to get the other books in the What If series.

    My kids are teenagers but I love children’s books. This is a cute book With an important message. Words have power and people of all ages need to keep this in mind. I will show this to my older kids as a good reminder to be nice!!

    This is a great children's book! Instead of a sharp answer the What if.....? makes the child think and the illustrations are really good, especially the me first! Highly recommend this book to teachers and parents alike to read to their children and then pose the question when they feel the need.

    Excellent read! My kids (ages 3-8) enjoyed this!

    My 8 year old could even read it to her younger siblings and keep their attention. Great pictures and message! Wonderful conversation starter as well.

    This is a quick read for adults who might be trying to help a child
    reflect on the consequences of her words. Most powerful if read aloud while allowing the listener to ponder the illustrations.
