Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Mr. Wilson, a teacher in second grade, can't wait for his class to begin because he has a very important interactive lesson to share with his students.  When the kids arrive they encounter a mysterious new machine that their teacher has designed to teach them about kindness and that will convince them that kindness is their new superpower.  

This creative, innovative and fun teaching method will direct kids to be kind to one another in their classroom and beyond.  He convinces  each student that they are indeed "Kindness Machines" personified!  How cool is that?  They can go forth out of school and be ambassadors of kindness wherever they may go.  

The illustrations are colourful and enrich the positive inspiring message.  If you have to choose to be something... ALWAYS... be kind!  I highly recommend this book.
