Encourage young bookworms to share their love of books. After reading an especially enjoyable library book, they can write a note of enthusiasm (or just a cheery message) and slip it into the book before returning it. You can write your notes on Post-its or on cut-out paper hearts. Check out other fun ways book lovers can share kindness.
Talk to your child:
How do you think the person who finds our note will feel when they see it?
Do you think the person who receives it will write notes to include in their library books?
Talk about whether your random act will start a “chain of kindness.”
