This beautiful children’s book by Jennifer Farnham takes young children on a journey of harmony and empathy. Using rhyme and age-appropriate language and imagery, Dear One, Be Kind illustrates how children can embrace feelings of kindness and love for everyone they meet, even when others are seemingly hurtful. By revealing the unseen message behind common childhood experiences, the concept of empathy is introduced, along with a gentle knowledge of our interconnectedness and the belief that, through kindness, children have the power to change their world. Magically illustrated with a soothing and positive message, this book is a joy for children and parents alike!



“Jennifer Farnham has created gentle prose enhanced with rich illustrations. Her tale reminds us that kindness and understanding are some of the best characteristics of what it means to be human. I’ll be happy to share this book with my grandchildren.”
