New Book By Maryland Fourth Grader and Her Mom Inspiring Acts of Kindness

This is the perfect book for kids (and their families) who love adventure and the world around them. It’s a surefire way to start anyone on a life of kind acts.

While families search for creative, safe, and healthy ways to stay balanced and busy during the COVID-19 outbreak, one fourth grader and her mom from Maryland are focused on spreading kindness—Adventures in Kindness, to be exact—a new action/adventures book that the duo wrote and will release on Saturday May 9, 2020 at their virtual launch party and community kindness celebration.

“When we set out to create this book, we didn’t know exactly where our adventure would take us,” said Carrie Fox, co-author and mom of Sophia, 10. “But we knew we wanted to build a set of practical and fun ways that kids and their families could actively contribute good to our world.”

Adventures in Kindness is a 170-page action/adventure book (and complementary website) for kids and their families filled with color-coded kindness adventures for kids to participate in to support their communities, their schools, their minds, their families and more. (There are 9 categories and 52 adventures.) The book was illustrated by San Francisco artist Nichole Wong Forti.
